EA has seen a lot of backlash in the past few years for their business practices. Can Respawn's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order save EA?
I think it will take more than a game. They have had a history of issues and I do not think one game will make that all go away nor change their behavior going forward. They will say "it sold but we left so much money on the table but not having paid content".
I think if people really want ea to lose the star wars license, they shouldn't buy the game. At some point Disney has to look to if it's the games, or people just not liking the publisher. These star wars games should be selling better. They should be better games. Star wars itself pretty much sets itself up for plenty of great game play types. On the other hand, Disney may just see it as that the sp stuff won't do well, so why not allow ea to crap out mp games which dont cost as much, but still make money, even if they aren't maximizing the potential of the franchise. To me, it seems the obvious fighter space flight sim in the vein of wing commander should have been a thing. Complete with sp story campaign, and cool mp space/planet battles.
i was hoping the same thing when I saw anthem announced.. I was sadly mistaken.. I mean the core concept of Anthem is great and I enjoyed the time I had with it.. but that was very minimal time.. so do I have hopes for this to turn things around.. short answer.. no
If ea are legally allowed to put in MT etc then it's non of anyone's business. Game development to too expensive now for AAA titles.
Pretty sure it's the consumer's business, considering they're the other end of that business.
Non of anyone's business? Not even the people putting money in their pockets?
No, even if Jesus himself came down from heaven on wings of a dove and proclaimed to the world that EA was forgiven, they would still be the dirty rats that they are.
Does ea have enough money to pay jesus to do that?
Not until they buy from software
Redeem? No. This could be however, a blip in the usual status quo that EA is in love with. Keep in mind, anyone who thinks EA is suddenly having a change of hard is gullible. EA will never change, they'll simply throw in the odd curve ball to make that a question people ask - lowering their guard. As for the game, might be great, who knows.
Ea has a habit of trying to make some sort of positive stride to repair their reputation after they've been tarnished. How many times last gen did we hear how they're going to improve things....from how many different executives who openly admitted they recognized what people said about them. EA can't even admit publicly that they recognize that anymore, so I'm skeptical if they really have any intent to change for the better. If the game is good, I may give it a shot. But, I'm not really all that pumped for a sp star wars game, which is not typical for me. I think the dev is good. I'm hoping the game will be good. But this announcement having to be prefaced by it being not just sp, but not containing mt seems wrong. It shouldn't be a selling point that you aren't trying to film your customers....it should just be the normal train of thought...and the expectation of the customer
I'm steering clear of this one. After watching the "trailer" for it, I'm not very impressed. It just looks like a reboot to Star Wars: Unleashed. I want another Star Wars RPG. Like KOTOR.
Quit falling for it my fellow gamers. Vote with your wallets and stop buying EA’s crap ass games. It’s the reason they have so much money to get the rights to your beloved franchises. I learned my lesson with Andromeda because I was such a huge fan of ME. I haven’t and won’t ever buy a game from EA again.
