Boss Key's Cliff Bleszinski and Ajran Busse reveal the various avenues they're exploring to recover from a rocky launch.
It fell off a... Cliff!
What went right with it?
Sometimes the public just dont want what your selling.
F2P is the only thing that might fix it.
Nothing, it wasn't bad, just wasn't good enough to compete with the overly saturated online shooter market.
I agree completely. I've been saying this for awhile, the online shooter market is too saturated and most of the people buying online games are fickle at best and stay with whatever is the top dog (overwatch). If they had made a multiplatform gears clone (or just ps4, pc) it would have sold way more as a complete packaged game. Who better to make a gears clone than cliffy?
As a ps4/PC owner I would never buy a gears clone or gears of war game
This is really the thing that bit Lawbreakers in the rump. Cliffy B thinking... shooters are all the rage and I can make a game with my name on it that will make it better than everything else on the market. He overvalued his marketing worth and delivered just the same thing everyone is already playing elsewhere.
Tired of multiplayer shooters Zzzzz .
1. Cliff was involved 2. It has no appeal 3. There are too many other great games, this is not a great game that deserves my time and money
too much ass, not enough bad.
It’s a shame that the only lawbreaker news is cliff talking about what went wrong. If that’s an attempt to keep the name in people’s minds then I think it’s ill conceived. Take the L and go back to R&D. See what people actually want this time instead of what he wants.
Lawbreakers,the only FPS game,with more articles about it, than players.
Uh uh what went right with lawbreakers
When you have a game that has similar formula of OW, you not going to stand a chance really unless you change things that make it stand out and Lawbreakers did none of that really.
This game was supposed to be free to play at first. Changing that is what went wrong.
Overwatch is what happened.
It really comes down to simply Lawbreakers being a game very few was interested in. It didn't stand out in any significant way. At this point the game may have to go F2P to attract a userbase.
What went wrong? Overwatch already existed.
The game mechanics intrigued me but I think it has an identity crisis. Further that, the fact the community is so tiny, it stops anyone from wanting to spend money at the risk of having a fairly mediocre / empty experience. If they can somehow rebrand this game - then perhaps it will form some kind of community. But it'll take a lot, including a price cut (to which I imagine they can't afford to do).
I just watched an IGN video of game play and it looks okay, but just kinda generic. I'll pass on this one.
Two major points... 1. Same-o Same-o 2. Cliffy B
The medals displayed every time you do anything placed right in middle of the screen are annoying.
