lol a dude bro shooter with typical cover shooter mechanic. SUCH RISK


Such unearned arrogance. If you don't think AAA new ips are risky, then I'd say you need to take a look at the dozens (over a 100 now?) studios that have closed since the start last generation.

I know he uses the Last of Us as an example, but the whole setting/style and story of the Last of Us made it less of a risk imho, just because it was set in a reality/real world. I see the Order being more risky as its a fantasy story.. I think as long as its a good game it should be ok, but if its middling then it could struggle.



Making an indie game : Dead of Day!

Ready At Dawn has always made great games that also usually push the hardware to its limits, and I expect nothing less from this. I'm sure it will sell well as its one of PS4's most hyped exclusives. Also its premise of Victorian-era London, werewolves and vampire infestation is very interesting and this game might be revolutionary.

I think the atmostphere plus the lack of multiplayer which makes said dudebro shooters popular is the risky part.



Lol at these kids thinking making a AAA shooter guarantees you success. Not to mention the fact that this shooter has no multiplayer. ..it is a HUGE risk, especially releasing it on a console with such a low userbase

I thought this was a first party Sony owned studio and IP?
With that said, wouldn't Sony be the ones incurring risk, not the developer?



99% of games are commercial risks.



Isn't anything these days a huge commercial risk for Sony?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

It's not. Also I don't see how that would change anything, the article only says that the game's a financial risk.
