Talking on David Jaffe’s YouTube present, Garvin mentioned that gamers can purchase a sport at full worth moderately than ready for it to go on sale or on PlayStation Plus as a free giveaway – the latter being the place Days Gone is now accessible for April 2021.
I do have an opinion on one thing that your viewers could discover of curiosity, and it would piss a few of them off. In the event you love a sport, purchase it at fucking full worth. I can’t inform you what number of occasions I’ve seen players say ‘yeah, I received that on sale, I received it by way of PS Plus, no matter’.
When Jaffe responded by saying that you just don’t know you want a sport till you play it, Garvin added:
I’m simply saying, you don’t, however don’t complain if a sport doesn’t get a sequel if it wasn’t supported at launch. It’s like, God of Warfare received no matter quantity tens of millions of gross sales at launch and, , Days Gone didn’t. [I’m] simply talking for me personally as a developer, I don’t work for Sony, I don’t know what the numbers are.
