@P00DGE: Wow, that much? So where does it rank in the list of your all time favorite games? Somewhere around #1327?

@jinzo9988: You should lay off the drugs. Epic is paying for these "free" games. It's not like EA had decided to give something away at no cost. Though they might as well since the game is only worth around $10 on sale now, and has been for quite some time. And they're probably making plenty of money through MTs.

@mooglestar: Yet that's exactly what any other company like Bethesda is always doing. Would it only surprise you because it's CDPR?

But great idea, ignoring the large majority of this game's buyer base by leaving out the last gen versions. I wonder why they didn't think of that? Maybe take a look at how many units the game has sold so far for PC. Because that's pretty much all there is if you subtract the sales from the last gen consoles. Hard to sell next gen games when there's no next gen consoles available for sale anywhere. And PC sales will never get anywhere close to what any game sells on consoles. I'd assume even less so for a game that has been available without any DRM at launch from GOG.

First they add a million different tokens you need to collect, then they remove them again. Good to see their putting their efforts on the right things.

Did MS buy them up or pay for exclusivity or why is the game not coming to PS5? Nobody chooses to release a game only for MS' consoles unless they're getting payed to do so.

@Barighm: Where did they say they were planning to make people buy the game again? I don't remember ever hearing them say they wouldn't offer the next gen upgrade for free.

Though this article does say that W3 is apparently getting a next gen update which will also be free for anyone that already owns the last gen version.

@Decoy77: And how would the game have sold anywhere near the amounts that they were hoping for if there's barely and of the next gen consoles around? You don't just drop the last gen consoles. They released it early in part because they wanted to cash in on the large last gen installbase. Next gen consoles don't even matter at all right now for game sales and even a year from now the installbase will still be quite low compared to the last gen.

And ultimately the game was announced for last gen consoles. To just skip them now would be a bad move and many folks would not have been too happy. That's if the game was released in 2022 of course. If they ditched the last gen versions right now then nobody would even get to play it aside from PC owners and the lucky few who managed to get a next gen console. Or were dumb enough to buy one for hundreds of $ above the normal price.

Nothing unexpected. I don't think anyone's doubted that it was purely the management's faults. The developers that are actually working on the game and know what state it's in would always delay their game for as long as they need to do get it done. Only the management likes to ignore what they're told and set unrealistic targets instead, hoping that somehow things will work out.

It's kinda hard to see how folks like that manage to run a company without running it into the ground in a short amount of time. Yet this is all common practice in the games industry. This industry is really doing way too well and all those execs have grown fat due to not being able to do anything wrong. With the right marketing you can make up for any bad decision you've made.

@skyhighgam3r: And what is the appeal of doing the same thing a million times over? I am already killing people, knocking them out, dragging them around and doing everything else again and again in every mission, even if I don't replay them. Why go through the same exact levels once more just to make it even more repetitive? As if there was anything interesting about taking a target out in a different way. And with infinite amounts of saves available and all the options this game offers it can be very easy. It might just take a lot of retries to get things to work out the way you want due to how strict the gaming often is.

But wait. Are you playing through the missions without ever reloading a save? Cause in that case it would kinda make sense to replay the missions. But I already have spent hours on each mission, in big part because I had to reload a lot, trying to do things properly. And I also always spent a lot of time exploring. Which is why replaying the missions didn't have much else to offer for me after the first run through. If I already have discovered the different options for taking out a target, then I don't need to actually see all of them in action. If I really cared about that I could just watch them on Youtube as well, without the tediousness of having to replay the full missions over and over.

@uninspiredcup: Well, you would be rewarding the devs by giving them a bigger cut of the sales. But **** the devs. Reward Valve instead by buying all your games on Steam, ensuring that they remain the top dog and never have to change anything.
