And they said they will announce a release date at the last possible second so... what you told me was very irrelevant.
Good thing you didn't ask them to announce a release date then...
At the rate they're going seems like PS5 will be out by the time this releases on PS4. Oh well. I'm glad to see that losing Platinum nearly a year ago doesn't seem to have hurt the gameplay.
Ps5 seems most likely. I wouldn't be surprised if it's 2021.
That said, Platinum finished their contracted work. I don't believe they were just booted. Not sure if there's been new developments.
