People please stop saying covid impacted development of Japanese games for years
Everything is open in Japan for over a year now. Games impacted by Covid were the ones that were to be released last year. Like Monster Hunter Rise, it was supposed to be a holiday title and end being released in March, that match exactly the amount of time offices were closed in Japan due to security measures (March to May 2020)
If anything western studios are the ones truly impacted by covid, here lockdowns were still a thing even this year. Covid is NOT a reason for any mainly japanese developed game being delayed for more than 3 or 4 months
Are you trying to to deprive the people of their scapegoat? That's sick!
