Apparently there are some legal problems that might cancel the game. I've never heard a dev say publicly 'I can't comment on game progress due to legal issues'. This isn't good.
It's called NDA. All medium and big companys aren't allowed to talk about unreleased stuff or details about development, deals with investors or publishers, etc.

How come CDPR was always feeding us screen shots and other details then? You think they don't have the same NDAs and other legal things? No, I think The Last Night is dealing with some blue-haired SJW legal onslaught.

It has little to do with SJW crap. Stop hating people that believe in something differently than you.

I do not think this is true. They got under fire for the quote that last Night is set in a world were feminism has won. That triggered a ton of people and the game is even banned on Resetera.

But the creator said that the game's direction isn't exactly about that "only". Do you think it's possible he lied about what the game was about to some investors?

This was the sentence that caused everyone to keep silent. He also corrected this statement after a backlash but it did not help at all.

And no I do not believe he lied. He just did not say this phrase. The themes are the same. And I get Microsoft getting scared because of the backlash. But I still blame this fake outrage to the SJW league and "games journalists" etc. who love to harass companies to remove stuff they do not like.

Whoever financially backed the game from the beginning, shouldn't have pulled their money after the backlash. They are the ones that were the problems here. Not people voicing their opinion about the themes of the game.

Social Media today is the easiest way to censor what people do not like by dogpiling on big companies. Given How "journalists" also ran with this bullshit they had no other choice . Reminds me of Sony removing Super Seducer 2 from their store after "journalists " contacted Sony over and over again why this game is on their store. As a big company you can not do much about these social media mobs. Either you comply you are are being presented as sexist, racist, homophobic the whole catalog of accusations

No they do not because this is creating a bad image and you will lose a lot through this. Just like H&M had no choice their stores even got destroyed for a stupid ad with a black kid wearing a "offensive" sweater. People get fired because of social media mobs almost every day. Why? Because Journalists are going with this and even harassing companies, lying in their articles etc.

And yeah ok in the end you have a choice. Either give u your business or comply.

Dude.......that was a stupid ad by H&M. It's okay to admit that billion dollar corporations do dumb things. And it's okay for them to "fix" the issue. For some reason, you are considering that to be them "complying" to the mob. We use to call that listening to the consumer\customer until it was black, brown, LGBT and women being the consumers. Now we are a mob. *SMH*

it was stupid sure but it was not racist. the child liked it the mother liked it and defended the add and then they got tons of harassment and death threats. People destroyed H&M store because of this ad and you are not talking about a mob here?

There is a difference to be offended by something and to harass and threaten companies and private people. The same by the way did happen with this "offensive" add in UK in which the model who posed for it and liked the work was threaten with death and rape threats by mostly fat over jealous feminists. Because of the slogan is your body beach ready. Fuck that to believe that this kind of fascist social media mob does not exist eventhough I can name you 100 more examples. Like the guy wearing a "sexist" shirt which was made by his best female friend. He got tons of threats and broke down under crying apologizing for wearing a fucking T-Shirt with women on it.

Yo want more examples? can bring them to you. Even on the games side.

I didn't say they didn't exist. I'm saying video game companies don't have to comply (using your word) if they feel they are in the right.

Old tweets or articles were also dug up where the dev supported Gamergate. That in itself blacklists you with the far left media and creates a domino effect where they likely door knock to 3rd parties demanding deplatforming. Ironic.

And whoever was funding the game could have kept funding it and everything would have been okay.

No one knows, unfortunately. The guy making it gets on Twitter and tells everyone the game won't be out for 2 more years and can only give cryptic non-info so all anyone actually has to go on is assumptions. There is no source of information that is accurately describing what has happened.
He's already posted an update on the subreddit, he can't talk about anything due to ID@XBox requirements.

Man, everyone in ResetEra was shitting on the game because of Tim Soret’s opinions and views. I hope this doesn’t happen here...
Resetera's users appear to be on a constant witch hunt and are always offended about something. This place is much more chill.

I look forward to this game, the visuals were like Flashback mixed with Blade Runner.

Well well always have that teaser, and it introducing me to Lorn, so that was a win.

Have other ID@XBox games been this restricted in terms of pre-launch updates? Just want to know if this is a special case or not.

Good news. It looked fantastic. I know the narrative was deemed problematic but honestly, it seems like an interesting concept to explore.

I'm really want to know this too. I can't see why MS would want to shut him up though. They haven't done this before from memory, but maybe someone else can remember a time when MS has done this.

It is an interesting topic if the creative actually wants to be smart and honest about it. If the creative just wants to create a stir in the public for the lulz then nah. Like when HBO was going to do that "If the South had won the Civil War" TV show. It was going to be created by the Game of Thrones people, but do I trust that they'd handle a subject like that well? Nah. :messenger_grinning_smiling:

I dunno. They keep updating and expanding their main page to add more info. I'm just happy it says it's still coming to xbox. I periodically check the site and it always feels like a little more info has been added. I think we'll get an update on game development, but that doesn't mean any footage will be shown. I'm cautiously optimistic that we'll at least hear something.
