Something like Helldivers but with Horizon robots could be fantastic and super successful. The formula is so obvious.
It sounds easy in our heads but everything in the gaming industry is getting delayed, cancelled or a mess 🤷♂️
How far back do you want to go? Arrowhead had Magicka and Helldivers 1 was in 2015.
Firesprite had The Persistence (71 on meta) before working on Horizon Vr. That's it. I know there's some old history with Psygnosis but Firesprite was a useless purchase. A publishing contract was enough.
People were saying the server issues at launch were going to kill the game but the peak today is already higher than yesterday and the reviews keep going up. Sony have a winner and it will be the best-selling game of the year 2024.
Xbox is a dead platform they make nothing on that.
Without Playstation, AAA doesn't exist. That's why there is none on PC, even Valve doesn't bother to make anything because the sales are garbage and unsustainable.
Every publisher like Take2, Square, EA, Ubisoft and Capcom rely on Playstation to make money. People campaigning for Sony to abandon consoles are actually hoping to kill the whole industry.
PC will never sustain all these franchises
