AAA Games Are in an ‘Awkward Middle Ground’ Right Now, Says XCOM’s Jake Solomon

Gaming in general and AAA gaming in particular are going through a rough patch. While 2023 was a stellar year when it came to well-received AAA releases, the constant rise of game budgets (with Marvel's Spider-Man 2 rumored to have cost $300 million to make) is literally eating into the margins of publishers and developers alike. In February 2024, Sony Chief Operating Officer (COO) and SIE interim Chairman Hiroki Totoki explicitly said a more aggressive multiplatform release plan on PC would have to be enacted to improve the operating profit.

When Marvel’s Midnight Suns was released in 2022, some were disappointed that players were unable to romance any of the superhero characters in the game. While players have wondered whether or not that was Marvel or Firaxis’ decision, Midnight Suns‘ Creative Director Jake Solomon has now affirmed to Digital Trends in an interview that he truly never considered romance for the game.

Sony Delists Ghost of Tsushima PC from Steam Regions in Line with Helldivers 2 | Push Square

Following Sony's decision last week to delist Helldivers 2 in 170 regions worldwide on Steam, it seems this will be the firm's PC stance moving forward, and it has since done the same for the imminent PC release of Ghost of Tsushima. More regions have been added to the list, taking the total number of territories affected to 180, which is now consistent across both titles.

With all the «negative sentiment» in the air and Helldivers 2 developer Arrowhead keen to keep its riotous fanbase calm, the release of the premium Polar Patriots Warbond presented something of a PR issue for the Finnish studio. Not wanting to appear «tone deaf,» the dev did just about the most on-brand thing ever, putting the matter to a vote.

GreedFall 2 May Not Be the Game You Think It Is | Push Square

GreedFall II: The Dying World is the first sequel Spiders Studio has ever made, but based on a new IGN preview, the RPG still appears to be very much its own thing. Not only is it actually a prequel to the first game, but the combat system has been completely changed. Taking inspiration from BioWare RPG Dragon Age: Origins, you'll slow down time and queue up actions for your party to utilise rather than engage in real-time hack-and-slash fights.

Helldivers 2 on PS5, PC Is Sony's Fastest Selling Game of All Time | Push Square

This author’s got to put his hands up: there are Slack chat records of me saying Helldivers 2 would be a total and utter sales flop. As it happens, the release has now cemented itself as Sony’s fastest selling first-party title of all time, netting 12 million units in 12 weeks across PS5 and PC, accurate as of 5th May.

Helldivers 2 Players Given Second Chance to Secure New Anti-Tank Stratagem | Push Square

With the week Helldivers 2 players just went through IRL, distracted by Sony's regrettable own-goal and subsequent reversal, it should be no surprise that the ongoing Galactic War effort has suffered similarly, with the situation looking worse all the time. Having failed to contain the Terminid Supercolony on Meridian, the Barrier Worlds in the Umlaut System have been lost; Super Earth has shifted its efforts to the wholesale decommissioning of Automaton forces, using the associated scrap to construct a new Strategem.
