Will More AAA Games Follow Dying Light's January Release Date Plan?

Dying Light? Great???? I missed that memo. I do agree though that these games should be more spread out through the year instead of them being shot all at once late in the year.

Dying Light would have been successful no matter what month it was released because it's a good game, however, releasing it in January, which was a slow month for games, probably helped it's initial sales numbers.

April, July and August tend to be slow months for games too.

Mass effect 2 launched in on Xbox 360 if my memory serves me right

JULY is the worst month for Video games.
I know because my B-day is then and I have never got a AAA game in July in 40 years.
