(Special) Are we going to have postponements in the world of video games? – We are entering the high phase of new game releases! However, with Coronavirus running at full steam in Europe and the United States, it seems that this high phase is a little lower… After all, we have a lot of developers closed at home, trying to work from their personal PC . What is clear is not at all as productive as being in a team in the office.
That said, despite the many doubts about this issue, the distributors and studios themselves guarantee that they are managing to meet their goals for the next releases. However, if you like to have the physical game on your shelf, I would forget that idea for now.
Are we going to have postponements in the world of video games?
Therefore, much has been said about potential postponements in the next generation of consoles, that is, both Microsoft and Sony may choose to launch the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 only in 2021. However, it is likely that this decision is not related to production, as this issue seems to be outdated. The problem is even the purchasing power of the market, which is likely to suffer a valiant tumble in the coming months, with the economy at a standstill or heavily ‘capped’.
Having said all of this, although many are concerned about the PS5 and Xbox Series X, many are those who have not yet stopped to think of the studios and publishers who still have many high-end games to launch in 2020. That said, Capcom came to public on Thursday, talk a landing on this subject, namely Resident Evil 3. Now read:
“Although the release date for Resident Evil 3 is the same. Some European markets will experience delays in delivering physical copies. ”
Similarly, Square Enix has also already ensured that Final Fantasy VII Remake will hit the market on April 10, although there may also be some delays in delivering physical copies. Due to problems in the delivery network, which now gives priority to essential orders.
Meanwhile, the leader of the Xbox Game studios group has also said publicly that all studios are dealing with problems, very real challenges, in their daily lives. Still, everything points to Halo Infinite and Halo Master Chief not being postponed.
Finally, we have Sony, which has already made public that it has no planned postponement. But that is monitoring closely what is happening in Europe and the United States. That is, if the Japanese giant thinks that it makes no sense to launch a game now, due to the supply problems, but also due to the fact that the economic power is not the same at this time… So, we will see some games to be postponed, like The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima.
However, we have already had some major releases in recent times, most notably Doom Eternal that even impressed sales. Having said all that, in April we should find Resident Evil 3, FF VII Remake and Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3. (if all goes well!)
