Devs: "Impossible" To Finish The Order In Only A Few Hours
The latest news didn't paint The Order: 1886 in a very positive light.
What does the studio say about this? Well, nothing new, although Eurogamer cites what was said during an interview conducted last week.
That's when Ready at Dawn founder and CEO Ru Weerasuriya addressed the idea that the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive could be beaten in only a few hours:
"I know there are numbers out there. I know why the question comes up. I know numbers have been put out there that are actually not right. It's impossible to finish the game in that time, so we know the numbers are wrong.
At the end of the day, we're not going to comment on it. We can't stop people from writing the things they do. And we're not going to jump at every single mistake that is made out there. Every time somebody has the wrong impression of something we made, or somebody writes the wrong thing about what we did, it would be a full-time job to be like, oh no, that's not right. We make games. We do what we do for the players. And, ultimately, that's where I want to leave it."
All that being said, Weerasuriya does admit that the game in question won't be considered long by anyone's standard. But he says that any game needs to "deliver the experience you were hoping it would deliver when you first tackled it." This isn't dissimilar to what I just said in yesterday's editorial. The bottom line is that if the game is good and we feel content with the experience, that's all that matters.
"Our industry is diverse enough that we need different games. We have to allow for different genres and single-player games like we do, multiplayer games, co-op games, social games, whatever it is."
Ready at Dawn just better hope critics don't slam the game for being too short. Sadly, that's a distinct possibility.
