Has Hype For The Order: 1886 Dwindled Since The Delay?
I'm sure The Order: 1886 remains one of the most anticipated games of the new generation.
For PlayStation 4 owners, it's definitely at - or near - the top of their priority lists in the future. That being said, has anyone noticed that the massive hype surrounding this game has dwindled since the announcement of the delay?
I mean, ever since we learned we wouldn't see The Order until next year, I think the number of headlines featuring this game have been cut in half. Perhaps that's to be expected; if it's not coming out this holiday season, we've shifted our focus to games that are on tap for the end of the year. There's some logic to that explanation, correct? Furthermore, it's perfectly reasonable to assume that the hype will once again hit a fever pitch at the start of 2015, especially if Sony kicks up the marketing.
However, I'm just wondering if the slackened attention is due to doubt and skepticism on the part of gamers. It's a little ironic that the game was officially delayed mere days after that underwhelming gameplay surfaced; I say "underwhelming" because it seemed to generate plenty of "meh" headlines. Now that the game has been pushed back, have many gamers just sort of dismissed it from their minds? And if so, is that only temporary?
These questions may not matter to everyone, but "the buzz" is critical for any and all consumer products. And that goes triple for gaming.
