The Order: 1886 has received a new trademark filed by Sony. The trademark application is for a video game, implying that they want to extend it.
I hope they give this game another chance, it had an incredible story and gameplay, It was just unfortunate that the game length was extremely short.
The team that made it was bought by Facebook. I don't see why they would continue the series with a new team rather than just make a new IP.
I guess it's still possible that another studio could take another swing at it. But yeah, Ready at Dawn was bought by Facebook.
would be cool to see an oculus version.
Yes Sony please!!!
It wouldn't be the first time this has happened. Bungie and 343 come to mind with Halo.
@CrimsonWing69 the difference is Halo was still successful. In my mind they should have put the series to rest when the original creators got tired of it but Microsoft love to flog the series so there you go.
am pretty sure Sony owns the IP so that doesn't matter at all.
So what other great games has that studio produced since being bought by Facebook?
@GamingSinceForever they made Lone Echo a well received VR game.
The team was, but that doesn't mean all of them left Sony. It's entirely possible that several of the employees still work for Sony.
"The team that made it was bought by Facebook." Yes.. Not the IP... Personally, The IP has soooo much potential for exploration.......If done right..... Which brings me to your post... Unlike FB... Sorry, Meta.... A team is not IP, and with an even better team working on such said IP, It could be a winner... Def wont be 1886 infinite,
Exactly @Rhythmattic Could you imagine if The Order was handed over to a studio like Santa Monica?! The Order 1886 set up a really nice setting and lore... now the idea could be pushed to the next level by one of Sony's high tier studios. It may be too much to ask to get one of the big dogs on it, but one can dream. It could even work out that someone like Santa Monica create a smaller team just for creative vision, then hand over the busy work of building that world to one of their subsidiaries like the newly acquired Valkyrie Entertainment, which specializes in high tier support work.
@Lord_Sloth Readyatdawn were never owned by Sony so no, none of their employees stayed with Sony. Order 1886 was a second party game funded by Sony but developed by an outside company.
@GamingSinceForever - Lone Echo and its sequel are some of the better VR games out there with a great story and some awesome VR integration. The second game only came out in October of this year, so it will be some time before we see their next project.
Hopefully playstation-5 will have a sequel to the order 1886.
Please let one of the big boys take a swing at it and slay us with an awesome game. Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, Sony Santa Monica, and Sony Bend could all do this IP justice.
^ Or Bluepoint.
Why would any of Sony's teams want to take their time and resources to work on another studios unsuccessful IP instead of their own unique ideas? Generally speaking Sony doesn't assign their top teams games to make they let them make what they want and are passionate about.
It’ll be just to hold on to the rights. They’re not making a new one. A remaster in 5 years is most likely, but until then, no.
If it had been marketed correctly as a strong narrative experience and sold for $30-40 instead of full price, the game would’ve big a huge success and we’d have guaranteed sequels. Loved the game, hope more from this IP is on the way.
It def cut corners though.. The Wolf fights where copy and pasted, the gun mechanics, decent... But the World was what made it... Maybe your standard gun mechanics, but never the guns.... The round table needs to be fleshed out....
Short games are ok with me. Everyone loves the Titanfall 2 campaign and it was only about 5 hours. The issue is gameplay, and frustrating controls that did not need to be frustrating. Other than that, the look and feel was fantastic.
Titanfall 2 also had an excellent multiplayer mode though. As excellent as the campaign was, no one would have paid full price for just that.
Totally agree. If it was a 20-30 hour campaign, it would have sold very well. It deserves another chance.
Nah it had mediocre to terrible reviews. Don’t really know anyone who actually loved the game, but there was potential. They should give it another go same studio. Lol
This is not that type of game. I can not think of a single story driven game that does not have endless fetch quests in a forced open world type game that comes close to 20 hours. Let’s be realistic… Either way, the game had issues that can easily be remedied and make for an amazing sequel and I hope it happens.
It was good but had a terrible Cliffhanger. An actual second half would have skyrocketed the game’s status. TLOU 2 was over 30 hours long for some people.
It really just needed to be twice as long. I can put up with super linear, tightly scripted gameplay as long as I feel like I'm getting my money's worth. But the game was so short with little replay value. And the length prevented the lore from being properly realized. I'm interested as long as they can flesh out the length. Possibly open up the gameplay slightly without detracting from the movie-like scripting.
Yeah I really liked the overall world and Sir Galahad (SPOILERS) Having Werewolves and then vampires opened it up to so many possibilities, who's to say other mythical beasts couldn't be introduced.
The story was good until it ended on a cliff hanger, I wouldn't call it incredible. The gameplay was dreadful. I would like to see an improved sequel however.
@zsquare Maybe I'm missing something but, wasn't that game panned after much hype as not very good and poor gameplay? Metacritic is 63% and user rating of 6.7 and by no means consider a hit. Actually a new developer could be good for the game.
Limited gameplay mechanics too but I REALLY enjoyed what was there.
Yep, I always liked the atmosphere and characters of this game. I think it can be a really good game if they put emphasis on the gameplay.
I don't know if I would say the gameplay was "incredible." The lore was fine and the weapons were awesome (and truly a standout visually, no questions asked). I'm impressed they got a game looking this good to run in such a stable condition when you consider the tech last gen. I only played it on base PS4, and that was really a marvel. But that all said, the gameplay didn't stand out for me at all. Felt like a pretty standard affair and, as you said, the length was pretty short. Granted, I got it on sale for $12, so I don't feel bad about that purchase. It didn't really linger so the point was really to tell the story they wanted to tell, which I can respect. I also hope they give it another chance, but I would prefer if they really made it stand out. There's a ton of creative talent over at PlayStation, so if Ready at Dawn had learned from the shortcomings of the first game and they're willing to solicit feedback from PlayStation studios, it has great potential.
I really want another one, I bought it day one zero regrets. I enjoyed it a lot and has lots of room for a sequel. HOWEVER USPTO policy is that a trademark only be updates with visual proof once every ten years after initial filing, and since the game is still for sale on the PlayStation Network it is likely just a paper work error that will be corrected so that they can continue selling the game digitally.
Yea ... I initially though this might be for a near-future res+fps boost and/or a PC port, paving way for 1887.
It was a really good game but there was a ton of room for improvement all around. If they had another crack at it, it could be something special.
A lot of games before and since have made absolutely shameless attempts at making a great experience that ended up falling short. This game gets the worst of it because of hype. And it's actually has really good narrative and gameplay. Tell me one thing NOW that it did wrong that other games aren't doing. Tell me.
I really like it, bought the special edition years after release, expecting an average game but was very pleasantly surprised
I really liked the concept, but the game wasn't perfect. It definitely had some flaws. The graphics not being one, they were insane. The coolest guns in the game were only usable for a short period of time. I believe there were like 2 werewolf fights that were basically identical which people pointed out. I'd love for the series to get another shot.
hope there is a sequel, first one was and still is stunning from every aspect, from gameplay, visuals , music, etc, you name it, it literally the whole game is realtime cgi!, imagine what a PS5 can do to it!
Oh, snap! I loved The Order: 1886 and would love for a sequel, prequel, or another game in that universe. I really thought it was amazing back in the day as far as storytelling and even some gameplay mechanics are concerned. Not to mention, it was a powerhouse title visually speaking for the time.
Please! This is great news; they at least plan to hold on to it for the future. This game/world had so much potential just needed a sequel to iron out the creases.
This series needs another chance especially with the power of the PS5.
Obviously there's many things that need to improve upon from the first, if a 2nd one is to be made,like more gameplay and way longer story. Overall the first game wasn't a bad game many things that Ready at Dawn did good like the atmosphere and cinematic of the game. So if a 2nd is in the works just look what worked and didn't work in the first and improve upon, there's a chance it get be hit.
Oh Hellz Yeah!
Please make it happen Sony. The ending of the first game left it wide open for a sequel. Loved the story and graphics as it was one of the more unique games of last gen.
This game did so much right, but was way too short. The foundation is there for an excellent franchise.
Loved the game, I hope the sequel is true
Loved that game. A sequel would be most welcome.
I remember loving the graphics and style of the game.
Oh yes please, i loved the first and want to continue Sir Galahads journey.
This sounds promising, loved the first game it had so much more to give. Lets hope a PS5 sequel is in the works.
I really want this game to continue. There is SO much potential of the settings, story, characters. Platinumed 1886 and I would love to continue truly. I hope something may be in the works. Let another studio take a crack at it since Ready was bought by Facebook...oh wait I mean Meta.
This was a let down of a game. Was an alleyway duck and cover shooter with pretty graphics. Run through an alleyway, spend 10mins killing waves of bad guys behind crates and repeat till the end.
This game was awesome
Im hoping they release a new game in the series. The Order:1886 was a pretty solid game, my only issue was that it was to short.
A lot of the forks on here are complaining about the campaign being too short. I found it to be about the same length as Unchartered two, in my book the perfect game. The graphics in the Order were absolutely spectacular for the time. However the gameplay was let down badly by dated mechanics which converged on being broken.
Please bring this series back, Sony!
Not to pour water on this, but the TM filing means absolutely nothing. They forgot to renew their original registration so needed to file a new application, its nothing more than portfolio management. I would love to see a sequel as I purchased it day one and felt pretty good about the purchase on the way to earning my platinum, but this story doesn't make that any more likely.
Get rid of the letterbox resolution. I know many people believed that was a design choice to make it look more cinematic, but that's just a bs excuse. It was due to the PS4 hardware limitations and the black bar method is an old trick used to eliminate the need to process/render those pixels in order to maintain a steady framerate and graphical fidelity
1887 confirmed !!! Jk , probably just your normal IP renewal because of someone not doing their job but you can hope
Cool. This game got amazing graphics. But was short. Really liked the world they created.
Tech might’ve caught up with the vision.
It's one of those game that would benefit greatly from the High speed SSD. Maybe that game is too ambitious for its time. The game has potential, but the execution is mediocre at best.
Hoping for a sequel one day
1886 was a great game. Played through sooooo many times.
one of the few games with a penis in it, we need more of em!
