Why Do Some Games Release Without New Game Plus?

So many games seem to release without new game plus. Why does there seem to be so many games adding it in as a feature after launch?

Honestly I feel a lot of modes are just devs overthinking it, most would be happy with just starting over with the same stats, but they always want to add some extra layers and loot to it and that's what I think delays it till after launch. And don't get me wrong I appreciate the want to add more, but like I just finished RoboCop and all I want to do is start over, or even replay missions with my new abilities and there's no way to do that yet.

yea its abit odd.

i replay alot of the games i like andbwhile i dont mind starting from scratch, sometimes it would be more fun with some extra goodies that carried over from my previous file.

I think Sony does it to give their titles a little bump after a month or so of sales. They've done that with a few titles. I think they did the same deal with photo modes

It’s so that the relevance of a game can be extended over time. Instead of offering New Game + from day one, developers can add it in a future update that will then give gamers an excuse to dust off the title. This leads to fresh news coverage, increased traffic and discourse, and prevents a game from fading away in a few weeks.

It’s a bit of that GaaS/episodic factor that attempts to prolong the relevance of a multi-year development and generate more buzz and profit.
