Jason is a playstation fan though, I don't get it? He's always been right about ND whenever he reports on them. Neil Druckmann isn't a fan of his. So if he doesn't come out on Twitter within the next few days and counter any aspect of the article, I will accept it was all true and the game is fukt.
I don't think he's a fan when he shared multiple times fake news about them to damage them. I could understand that he could have got one or two sources reporting wrong controversial info once, but not multiple times. Even more when he isn't the only one in his team who did it and was proven wrong multiple times.
In terms of PR for a global corporation publicly traded isn't good to go in Twitter to call out someone, specially if it's someone from Bloomberg. For the company it's better to make a public announcement as they did to control the narrative and do it in the most positive way.
It would be also good to appear as an example in the next State of Play or in the Summer Doritos Show showing the game a bit and also having Druckmann saying that Bungie gave them very valuable feedback thanks to their expertise in live games, providing some great ideas to improve the game that will make it much better, but sadly they require a good amount of work, which means we'll have to wait more to get it.
Don't forget the leaked horizon multiplayer screenshot we've seen, that looks like a shitty sea of thieves clone and nothing like horizon. The future of Jim/Hermen's playstation is clear, and is one I will not buy into.
This post is an example of why gamedevs don't like to show games in early stages of development, and to wait as much as possible before showing gameplay.
Players don't understand that games under development, specially during early stages, normally look ugly specially when running in a potato laptop from someone.
