Forums - Gaming Discussion - Square Enix reports ¥6.5b loss for HD games, driven by poor performance of Marvel's Avengers

The loss seems to suggest that Marvel's Avengers had a budget of around $100m USD and only sold 3m copies so far.

Well, since Avengers is a GAAS, I'm imagining that microtransations(if they are there, and if not in the future) will make up for it, unfortunely.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

well that means that FF7 R2 releases sooner

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

I always said that that Avengers game was a huge mistake. They put both Crystal Dynamic's Tomb Raider series and Eidos Montreal's Deus Ex series on hold for that game, and then it ended up flopping after they spent 3.5 years working on it. Worst thing is, because it was an expensive multi-game Marvel deal, you know that they will continue working on more Marvel games while leaving Tomb Raider and Deus Ex on hiatus.



Most of that budget was the license. I hope they learn from that mistake.

Sounds good to me. Karma for making the exclusive DLC deal.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

Prices of DLC are getting slashed. Unlikely this will make money. And that's a good thing. Just make a good game instead of a giant ad for microtransactions.

Oh you. That had nothing to do with it.

I know. Maybe I should have said indirect karma or unrelated karma.

I thought the Corona pandemic would push all big gaming companies and the sales of their games a lot
