Actually I'd go with "and or things were so constantly in flux". Corona really, really, really messed with everyone's plans.
And that has a huge chain effect. When can you get parts, at one price, at one speed etc.
An early date (that isn't announced) gets leaked and it has to change and suddenly people are missed off at rumors.
Yeah plus that Covid 19 factor. but i believe SOny Ninja are famous in terms of keeping NDA and secret
While Nintendo Ninja is more about keeping their IP, SOny is more about keeping secret.
Ehhhhh. TLOU2, PS Plus Games list, PS5 release date and features.... They may have been good once upon a time but this year has proven not so much.
True that Nintendo's ninja's certainly guard their IP but they also seem pretty damn adept lately at keeping a secret. Do you know any other game companies that can announce a game they've been working on for over 2-3 years that launches in just 2 months?
That said, this pandemic has probably messed with so many schedules that it's almost shocking that only 2 presenting developers were unaware of the reveal date leading up to it.
