It's been almost a full year since the next project from Insomniac Games was made official and it has always been purported to face a 2012 release. With the year half gone, OnlySP argues why it should not see the light of day until 2013.
We havent heard or seen anything from this game since it was announced. How would it be able to release this year?
We'll probably see it at E3, but a 2012 release date for a new franchise wouldn't be a very good idea. Common sense points to a release sometime early next year to give it a little breathing room. January or February would be good, since Bioshock, God of War and possibly GTA5 will be coming out in spring. Failing that, the dead of summer or early fall, though I hope they don't wait that long.
Bioshock was already delayed. Just like every other year, it will come close then all these games will be delayed till early 2013, like always. I see no reason why it cant come out this year. EA's marketing, plus a team up with Sony for marketing, would make it fine. Heck if it does come out this year I will put another game aside just to get it.
It can't come out this year if it isn't finished ^
@soldierone Why would Sony help market a game EA is publishing????
Am I the only one who gets the feeling it will be "meh"
me too. I saw the trailer and I though "oh okay" :/
I was just thinking about this game the other day. They must be working hard on this. No press about it at all. Almost forgot it existed.
Holy crap, I forgot how excited I was for this when I first saw the trailer. But yeah, it's not coming out this year. We haven't seen a thing.
Even If It was...nothing stopping him from buying It next year
insomniac are one of the most under rated devs in the business, sony as much as i like them never really advertise their exclusives that much. So whenever this game is released it needs the backing of EA 100% even though we know so little i just have a feeling this new IP won't be successful sales wise because its just not gonna be that kind of title. but critical appraise it will get either way i will play it and here is hoping insomniac can hit a home run
Meh. Insomniac never really made any games that interest me much aside from Spyro back in the day. Even this game looks very meh. Hopefully my opinion will change when they show much more of it.
I have to admit the humour is a bit "meh". Although watching E3 on my Tv and seeing the buddhist monk part (I was barely paying attention) nearly made me shit myself in fear. I don't think we can predict whether this game will be a success but I am interested to see what was in the trailer incorporated into gameplay.
I'm just afraid EA is going to throw this one to the wolfs, like a lot of their EA partners titles. Shadows of the Damned, Bulletstorm, and Alice, were all released last year and got little exposure or marketing, and the sales slumped from that.
Bulletstorm was heavily marketed because of the Gears 3 Beta invite, Alice was repetitive as hell, but you are right about Shadows of the Damned. I heard really good things about it, but never got around to playing it.
BulletStorm had the Gears Beta, but it was barely promoted, I hardly remember any ads, on TV, the internet, in Gamestop etc. And even if the Gears Beta really was the big push for this game, it didn't help, Bulletstorm barely sold a million copies on 3 platforms. Alice may have been a bad game, but again EA still didn't promote it at all, they just threw it to the wolves and let it die. Sometimes bad games do sell, look at Operation Raccoon City, or Ninja Gaiden 3.
Ive played all 3 games mentioned above and can say the best game of the 3 got the least exposure- Shadows of the Damned. I seen ads for Bulletstorm on TV, the internet etc, Alice Madness was much talked about and i seen a lot of internet coverage, but Shadows of the Damned had nothing and even the reviews were very average. However, everyone I know who has played it loved it. As for Insomniacs new game, not sure what to make of it. I dont think Sony will help market it, and I dont think EA will spend much behind it either. Its a new IP, looks average and with all the other big games coming out next year (GTA, GoW:A, WiiU games, Devils 3rd, Bioshock, Metro, PSABR, annual COD and any other games that are unannounced). Then again you never know and thus game may become a sleeper hit or get huge backing.
this was a fun comercial. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I really like Insomniac and I want to support their new venture but Overstrike doesn't really appeal to me. I'm not sure if it was the theme or the style, but I watched the trailer and honestly I expected more from them. It just seemed quite, safe. That being said i'm more than willing to give Insomniac a chance to change my mind on Overstrike.
Early/Mid 2013 is when I guess it will release.
If overstrike is revealed at this years e3 then Theres a high chance that it would release in 2013
