A complicated topic. Yes, they would have needed another year, and with hindsight this would have catapulted them to the next level as a company. Even the buggy Gothic 3 sold 500k copies on PC within…

Not really. Other countries have done it for decades while Germany only started it 5 years ago. 50M per year isn't much. I think Ubi alone got more when they've opened their last giant studio in…

The business side of the long term project sounds a bit like a marketing construct to me. It sure sounds good.

Ulisses as a decades old print and pen&paper publisher didn't have a digital business…

Money, as in lack of budget.
Or lack of interest (From Software).
Or it's considered unnecessary because the stupid community will fix everything for free within a few weeks. (Bethesda RPGs)

I finished it once with the community patch, plus the different endings after the branching point near the end.

The early game sucked IMHO. Thank god it became much better when I left the coastal…

They can't. They are a Playstation Studio. The only way they could help out is if there's a deal between Embracer and Sony. And this won't happen. Nixxes will probably port things like Uncharted,…

This. MS has to appear harmless until the ActiBlizz deal is through. They can hardly risk buying another big publisher now.

Another point is that the EA C-level guys want to sell the cake and…

It would make a lot of sense. A new Deus Ex would probably be made by the studio which made HR…

I think so too. Embracer has way more than 100 internal studios. They love to give remasters to the more cost-efficient ones. Sometimes they only ramp up the resolution, upgrade the interface and…

It wouldn't surprise me if THQ helps them refocus, to motivate them to ship E3 quicker. ;)

No, it's indeed unclear, I think.
I guess the key point for Squeenix is: they got rid of it. Either Embracer gets the licenses and has to fullfill the contracts with Disney or Disney says no and…

That's a mystery for me too. It seems they re-used half the world and many assets. Then why 4.5 years?

Yes. Maybe they can give the Marvel games to a cheaper studio like the guys who did the Crysis remasters.


Marvel probably has an exit option in case of a company sale. So embracer has to talk to…

Based on Elex and not Elex 2, I also have my doubts. Maybe it would have been wiser to scale down on content and size and double their coding and animation departments to clean up their tech and…

I saved Mankind Divided at the point of no return yesterday evening! :)

I'm quite optimistic we'll get another Deus Ex. Remasters of the old ones first, though.

300M was a steal … except that…

Hi Pladio! :) I came by once a month or so, but didn't post.

From what I understand based on industry types on record is that 6k cost is rather low. If I'm not mistaken Deck13's GM said in a…

Sorry, I'm not sure what exactly you're refering to.
THQ Nordic is the owner and publisher of Piranha Bytes. They are also one of the 10 or so branches of the Embracer Group. So Elex 2 was an…

Thanks! Almost exactly 1 year of silence. :) :party:

I made the mistake of playing Elex immediately after Horizon. Saying it felt rough around the edges would be an understatement. :gorath:

Your budget considerations are way off.

Elex 2 is a AA game. Team size ca. 30 people in a first world country, ca. 4.5 years. At only 6k costs per person per month this puts it in the 10M EUR…

What makes you think they invested only 1-2 million?

Releasing Elex 2 sandwiched between Elden Ring and Horizon 2 probably wasn't as great an idea as THQ thought. ;)

No longer their job. ;)
PB said THQ wanted to announce during the GC 2020. The show was cancelled, so the plan was changed.
