    Same here. I'm curious to see how much changes. Though yeah, not for most people right now.

    Anthem

    This pretty much. Also, there seems to be an odd albeit likely theory doing the rounds: i.e. EA holding off sites/YTers from putting scored reviews out before Feb 22 if sites/YTers got codes via EA. Would have been foolproof deceit with release day reviews only and assured pre-orders for EA if it wasn't for Origin Premier/Access and EA Access. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

    Won't be the first time he did. Zampella ftw "Zampella then deferred to an EA publicist, who repeated the phrase that the publisher is "committed to the franchise". The Respawn head responded, "so, whatever the f**k that means?"" https://www.pcgamer.com/ea-is-committed-to-titanfall-2-but-respawn-doesnt-know-what-that-means/

    LOL trust Mike Ybarra to shoot himself in the foot regarding Anthem of all things:

    Amy Hennig talks about the issues devs face using the Frostbite engine. Explains why, that despite of being in development for so long, parts of Anthem are half-baked. "So building all of that third-person platforming and climbing and cover taking and all that stuff into an engine that wasn't made to do that. We did a lot of foundational work that I think the teams are still benefiting from because it's a shared engine, but it's tough when you spend a lot of time doing foundational stuff but then don't get to go ta-da! [laughs] You know, here's the game." https://www.usgamer.net/articles/amy-hennig-interview-uncharted-4-leaving-ea-ragtag-star-wars

    👍 Meh, doesn't bother me tbh. I don't read comments anyway or bother with the like to dislike ratio. I knew what was going to happen the moment I suggested the headline.

    I'm no expert. Never was. But yeah, AFAIK it didn't seem like they were rushed. As for EA Access/Premier backfiring...well it has for some time. Since Need for Speed 2015 and SWBF1 to be precise. As for the memes, the subreddit is lit with potential lulz. Assuming if Randy isn't jailed for child pr0n.

    Do we even know if this happened in the case of Anthem? Apparently it was delayed to give it a longer marketing window, nothing to do with development.

    LOOOOL. Nope. That's how development works if EA/BioWare didn't know what it was doing. Way too many instances of 'get something working out of the door' this generation with EA such as: Battlefront 2 Mass Effect Andromeda Battlefield V (where's my BR yo?) Need for Speed Need for Speed Payback

    ICYMI: this is an example of how the game locks you out of story missions + pads game length.

    Metro Exodus

    This is correct. That said, DLSS/RTX is still a placebo until Nvidia convinces more game studios it's worth it right now. Everything points towards RTX taking off with next-gen consoles and therefore making it worthwhile for more game devs to care from a production/development standpoint. But in Metro Exodus it's epic.
