What? It's basically BF3 with more bugs and prettier graphics, they must be joking.

It still takes 2 years and the effort of 300+ people to get to that point though. Not to mention marketing, and other internal production costs.

So the question is how much went directly into production? What went towards marketing concerns.

According to your logic, Fallout and The Elder Scrolls should be $10 games.

ZodTheRipper1740d ago

That's certainly not what I was implying. I'm just saying that I can't believe that those 100 million bucks went into game production (and quality assurance). It's 100 million dollar, just think about how much 1 million is already.

Detoxx1740d ago

DICE only failed on the QA part.

The game is fine now and it has the best FPS multiplayer.

Makes plenty sense that this was a hundred million dollar budget game, 5 platforms, R&D in pushing a newer engine 300+ developers, marketing, distribution, publisher-platform holder partnerships and post release work from rushing DICE to compete with COD and IW... Makes perfect sense

This the reason so many huge companies end up abruptly dying. The development costs are so high that they can't afford to have AAA games fail which leads to a lot less chances taken. Ubisoft could be next if watchdogs and ac 5 sell poorly.

So many money wasted on one of the worst campaigns I've ever seen in recent shooters. Useless mo-cap acting and an asinine script.

100 million on the game or perhaps lot of it was spend on wages and marketing.

100 Million$ beta that may or may not be getting any better after the updates. Fix one thing, Break another.
