I think it's best we leave these games we're they belong...in the past

Secret Rings, Unleashed, Black Knight etc, they weren't the best at least enough for a remaster

Generations is getting one because they had something easy to shove Shadow into before the Sonic 3 film and it's probably the better ones they've did over the past decade or so.

To be honest I'd rather know stuff is in the works but other ppl throw fits over it so it's whatever

I'd rather they announce a game when it's like 3 months away. Quick little advertising campaign, round of interviews, gameplay deep dive, and a launch trailer. That's all you need. Cheaper marketing rather than wasting resources trying to maintain hype over like 4 years.

Also, it's more likely that people will be hyped up and make an impulse purchase, or a preorder if the release date is announced.

Not announcing too early also contributes to better work environment. I’m in IT and there’s just too many crunch happened because some higher ups set a hard deadline way too early down the line.

Yeah. Fallout 4 announcement was great. Announced during the summer and it came out fall of the same year.

The same thing happened with Witchbrook, its been multiple years and nothing. No updates at all, really. It's nice to know something is coming, but waiting for 5+ years for info isn't really fun

Ikr I agree tho, in the ps360 era games were shown in trailers and they'd release within a couple months, plus cutscene trailers are so days of the old I don't get hyped off of that, they used to show gameplay footage, screenshots in the game informer magazines they had confidence back then creativity was at a all time high folks weren't copying souls games like that or call of duty, nowadays we get shhi like 2023/2024 trailer with a damn fall 2026 type of release day like really bruh tf by time that come out yall sure ya gone get sales from folks who been waiting that long, that's a huge risk doing that cause people lose interest
