Well with SIE cracking down on 'toxic masculinity' and making sure woman aren't too realistic, I don't see that ever coming to pass. Doesn't stop the imagination though I guess.
Me neither it was an aside to your European style movies, talking of crackdowns Should Sony making sure women aren't too realistic be making sure they are more realistic like the Alyx Vances and Aloy's of the gaming world. gaming is no longer if it ever was the domain of testosterone laden teenage boys, and you can have sexy women without them being sexualised, there is room for large breasted women showing off their midriffs and cleavage , it's just that it's become a lazy staple, where you have scenarios that show a person dressed in not much more than a bikini moving through a freezing winter landscape while a complaining about how cold it is.
I want more characters like those mentioned by name but I want the games themselves dictate how they will be portrayed both emotionally as well as physical,rather than some PC correct mandate from above, because you have to be careful that the intent of making it harder for certain games that use titillation as the main selling point doesn't create a splash across the whole sector, especially when it coming from above without much engagement with those at or near the splash point . gee I rambled on there instead of talking pictures sorry about that.
For me personally, it just needs to fit the type of game and story line. If the game is about chicks in bikini's playing sports, with realistic or overblown physics, I don't really see the problem as long as there aren't any 'wardrobe malfunctions' in game, and make sure it's rated properly.
In terms of HZD, trying to 'pimp out' Aloy by creating Miami Beach Dawn, would be a horrible decision. They could potentially add romance into the story somewhere, but it's the kind of game where the door would close behind them and the screen would fade to black.
The devs no doubt know what kind of audience they are after for their games and straying from that initial vision and narrative will lose them fans. I don't see why SIE should be sticking their nose into those kind of decisions, aside from their own first party if they wish, and maybe those select few third party games that obliterate the finest of lines, if they exist.
