So um… Can anyone think of a gaming company that has had one game for 15 years and done nothing else? No side projects, no spin offs, no alternate titles, nothing else at all, and that company still be doing well?
The fact that CCP has tried to diversify is awesome. While people complain, they forget that CCP has been on the cutting edge of a lot. I can’t think of any other company who even tried to have 2 separate games interact together in differing platforms. Heck most games can"t even be played cross platform much less let the actions in one game effect the other. Guess what, DUST did.
Valkyrie… A game started as nothing more than a side project to let developers have a little free fun development time to create as they please… Turned into an opening launch title for VR, that’s impressive. Yeah VR may not have caught on, but still the buzz generated was great PR for CCP.
So yeah… This stuff wasn’t perfect, but man it was impressive. And it was cutting edge. Do you think blizzard or bungie did as much innovation? Heck Microsoft is huge and even they couldn’t get PC and console players together in Halo. It may finally happen in the next halo but not yet.
So sorry, complain all you want… CCP has done extremely well. Yeah things aren’t perfect, but for what amounts to an Indy game developememt company, to do all they have done, even if it wasn’t always perfect, congrats to them. I’m still subbing that’s for certain.
