Yosuke Matsuda, the chief executive of Square Enix, has stated in a recent interview with The Financial Times that the coronavirus pandemic has caused “time to stand still” on production of the company’s new titles.
Many of us will be too old to play FFVII Remake’s final part.
Tetsuya Nomura isn't the best director/story teller. It was doomed from the start. Just look how dated the overall design is of Midgard. Anyone could have done what they did for the remake.
wow, u are delusional. i agree with you on nomura, but hes not the only director this time. and to say how "dated" the midgar design looks lol mate, get a grip.
Unless I'm dead I'll never be too old to game
Same.. I'll literally be gaming in my death bed to the very end if i can.
Dont see why everything had to go to a hault when Japan itself never came to a hault. Development in japan couldve went along fine.
Japan did go into lockdown briefly in certain hotspots plus companies were advised to work from home. Only so much work you can do working alone as a developer, it delayed FF14's patched content from getting released and a lot of that stuff was done before they worked from home, took them an additional month.
I know exactly how long it went into lockdown About a month and it wasnt even mandatory.Many companies did make you work from home. Many companies were also ill equipped to do so cause it was their first time transitioning to telework. That being said besides that month. Everything was pretty much normal.
Corona has the world standing still, but don't put blame on it for how unorganized you guys usually are
Huh.... than why is every other developer pumping out content!
Looks at FF7R. Y’all forgot about this title already?
So many people and companies are using covid as an excuse these days. Just stop it, it's an easy way out and i have no respect for a huge company using covid as their reason why they couldn't make something on time. Bad things happen all the time, people face hardships of all kinds and instead of using these things as an excuse to be lazy or not do anything, it should motivate you to change, innovate and adapt. We are not supposed to let negative things beat us down, or use an excuse. Take a negative as a challenge to make yourself a better person. Always test yourself, if life is too easy, put more obstacles in your path to beat. Being a victim will get you some temporary emotional support but it gets you nowhere, in fact it sets you back. I don't want sympathy from anyone, i want respect. Fight, work, struggle and never back down, that's how we grow. Fuck covid and your excuses.
Disagree, work is not as important as well, life and happiness. Thought covid would teach people that. But all it's done is showcased that mediocre side of humanity again..just like when somehow Donald trump became a president. And somehow democrats thought Hillary Clinton was a good candidate. What your say is...now that theres a pandemic. Hard working game devs should focus more on game dev..Not on their family? SE is known for being a harsh working env already
the nightmare will be done in 14 days !
We often hear about crunch time for games to make their release. Most studios barely get their games out on time and quite often games are incomplete now-a-days. I would rather have studios delay their games for whatever reason and ship an acceptable quality product, then ship a mess that requires three months of patching just to get the game into a decent state. Nobody lives or dies because of gaming. Games are entertainment not food or shelter. We can wait. If you are so bored because games aren't coming out this holiday, go and volunteer at a food shelter to feed the 10's of millions of people that are unemployed because of COVID.
