The industry's biggest publishers now focus on pumping old franchises for incremental growth rather than honing their ability to create the next big thing.
They are so submerged on GaaS that I doubt they can go back to the single player development cycle anymore.
Activision just worked with FromSoftware to make Sekiro. That is a step in the right direction.
they will show us new stuff under one condition: everybody stop supporting gaas titles. within a very short time period they would be forced to reconsider their approach. but consumers are consumers. not able or not willing to think 2 minutes ahead. the result is: we are stuck with these anti-consumer business models. thanks, dudes, for being indifferent asf in your buying habits ;-)
