Days gone director John Garvin reacted over to the unraveled story Gone days 2.
Days Gone’s writer and creative director put on weight David Gaffe’s Podcast to say that gamers shouldn’t “complain if a game doesn’t get a sequel” if they didn’t buy it “at full bloody price.”
“I have an opinion on something that might interest your audience, and it might piss off some of them,” Garvin said on the podcast (thanks, VGC). “If you love a game, buy it for full bloody price. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve seen players say, “Yeah, I got this for sale, I got it through PS Plus, whatever.”
“I’m just saying you don’t [know if you like a game until you’ve played it], but don’t complain if a game doesn’t get a sequel if it wasn’t supported at launch.
“It’s like God of War made any number of million sales when it launched, and Days Gone didn’t. I only speak for myself personally as a developer, I don’t work for Sony, I don’t know what the numbers are. “
“I can tell you when we did this [Syphon Filter] Dark mirror [on PSP]We got so fucked by Dark Mirror because piracy was one thing and Sony didn’t really know what piracy was doing with sales, ”Garvin continued.
“And we’d show them torrents, a torrent site had 200,000 copies of Dark Mirror downloaded. If I remember correctly – the numbers could be wrong – but still I was pissed off about it, I thought, “This is money out of my pocket”.
“So I think the increase in engagement for the game isn’t as important as: did you buy the game at full price? If so, then it supports the developers directly. “
Sony Bend apparently Days Gone 2 accused Sonybut it was never done because the company wanted to invest in safer, more commercially attractive games. Sony reportedly turned down Days Gone 2 before development began.
Days Gone started off with mixed critical acclaim but appears to have found a weakness at the heart of the entire gaming audience. Back when it launched in 2019, VG247 called its story “very stupid”.
The title came to PlayStation 5 runs at 60 fps and a dynamic 4K resolutionAnd that’s it comes to pc this spring. It’s one of the games too available this month on PlayStation Plus.
