How does it matter who is client and who is vendor?

 

CD will do all the work while The Initiative will ensure quality control.

 

That's how it must be set up, I think.

 

It will turn out pretty good by the looks of it. :wub:

 

Some people are just salty :ha:

The 70 devs are all lead gaming specialists , there is nothing to worry .

 

People are dumb to expect a newly formed studio announced 3 years ago at E3 (not to forget the impact covid has had) to pump out a new AAA game next year . 
The title was always a 2023 -24 release .

 

even established IP  sequels takes 4-5 years now so why are we expecting miracles here?

 

next year and 2023 is already going to be great for 1st and 2nd party output.

Already too much in the pipeline .

What about the promise of a new aaa title every other month? 

 

There was no promise of AAA title. 

 

They can be AAA or AA. 

 

It is being kept. From my perspective

 

Aug - Flight sim, the Ascent

 

Sept - Psychonauts 2

 

Oct - Back 4 Blood

 

Nov - Forza Horizon 5

 

Dec - Halo Infinite

 

It's pretty loaded and delivering more than promised. Many more games are being released, I just listed those I will play.

These 2 are neither aaa nor aa (as per MS admission) and are being treated as indies by MS. 

 

 

No physical release, no further games in the pipeline.

or Sunset Overdrive ( frandship with sony broken, Insomniac is our friend now! )

 

I almost got a Xbox due to that game... still to this day that game looks super fun to me...

 

If they would have said yes to Sunset 2 who knows.... insomniac wouldn't be where it is right now...

 

That's the problem I see with MS in general... they don't extend the support for the IP at all.

 

If there were audience for it let the studio do some work and evolve much more out of the new IP/World they created... its a new IP!!! what do you expect?? it to sell 8-10 mill??

 

one game came out they are not happy with numbers... and thats it... THAT'S A WRAP!!

CD acting as a support studio to initiative is like Salman Khan playing a sidekick to tushar kapoor in a film. 

 

In all likely CD will lead the project with initiative being a support studio  (like bloodborne from + sony japan) + many other small outsourcing studios will be contracted. 

 

As for reboot, Spencer was playing this game back in early 2020 yet 18 months later a new studio is hired to make the game and they officially say that it is very early is development. Atleast with CD coming in the game won't be cancelled whatever the final quality of the game is

Ah all likely?. So no Source just bs lol?  Do you have any source? Are you ready to eat crow when you find out that lead creative director is still from Initiative. 

 

 CD is assisting them as project is big. Creative head is still  Initiative. You do realise Splash damage helped Coliation in every Gears game? CA and Saber also helped 343? Unless you can show me legit  proof (not some random twitter post) i can't take your post seriously lol.

 

Rhonda from SSM joined the studio as creative lead after Murray left.

Joe Miller?  And what's his source? That guy does nothing except coming up with conspiracy theories to bash Xbox. 

 

Im telling you PS fanboys brag about exclusives all the time but most of them spend more time  searching for anti Xbox news and come up with conspiracy theories to bash Xbox than playing PS exclusives? 

 

 

Anyway, lets move to other thread.

Firstly, it is very funny that when you want good press, Crystal Dynamics are a “world class team” behind games like Tomb Raider, and not the train wreck that is The Avengers.

 

And secondly, announcing that a whole other studio is coming in to work on a game that nine months ago was only being made at The Initiative sure does raise some questions, which the “we’re still early in development” is hoping to head off.

 

Even Kotaku piling on initiative.

^^Typical Kotaku. Entire foundation is laid on click bait articles without  any source to trigger fanboys from each side. 

 

This collaboration getting so much attention coz CD are SE owned devs and they are big studios.

But MS collaborating with other studios for their games is not a new  thing. Coliation did for 4 as well as it was their first proper game. But for Gears 5 they didn't take any help as hard work for creating assets nd all was done in 4.

 

Initiative new studio working from scratch, dont have 300- 500 people to make game like perfect dark, so its not bad thing they called CD to help speed up the development. Sony fanboys worried now Perfect dark will be a good game and will release  sooner than expected. So they turning this into a bad thing. Lol

 

 

Days Gone was in development for 6 years and Sony internal studios were helping Bend with development as well.

 

If Darren Galeghar former head of CD called people from his old studios, then how its a bad thing? As gamers we intersted in end product not how its made? Right?  You all care about Chinese workers who work in factory assembling PS console?  No. Consumers only care about actual product. Lol
