Days Gone 2 Destiny Apparently Hinged on Metacritic Rating
Former Bend Studio staffer and Days Gone director John Garvin claims that, in his opinion, “Metacritic rating is all the pieces” to Sony.
Final week, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier reported that Sony cancelled a Days Gone 2 pitch, following which various the sport’s builders left Bend Studio. Garvin, who resigned shortly after the sport’s launch, made the aforementioned remark in a video interview with God of Battle creator, David Jaffe, who runs his personal YouTube channel.
“That is simply the fact of Sony,” mentioned Garvin. “If you happen to’re the artistic director on a franchise and your sport is coming in at a 70, you’re not gonna be a artistic director on that franchise for very lengthy.”
Garvin then went on to take the blame for Days Gone not interesting to a wider viewers, and bizarrely urged that the sport could have carried out higher if it leaned in direction of being woke and politically appropriate.
“I utterly agree that it was on me and Jeff, and the fellows at Bend Studio, and on all of us to create one thing that may have wider enchantment, that may keep away from among the pitfalls that have been sort of self-inflicted,” he continued. “I’m not saying in any method that we should always have all purchased into political correctness and change into woke and carried out all of the issues to fulfill social justice warriors – I’m not saying that in any respect. I’m saying that as an organization making merchandise for thousands and thousands of individuals, it’s on us to guarantee that it’s worthwhile and in addition enchantment to a large sufficient viewers to develop the model.”
Whether or not Days Gone 2 will see the sunshine of day or not stays to be seen.
