So I present you proof and you ignore it lmao. I believe you are not working right? Otherwise it's really weird the assumptions that you're making. Remote work was defined and done in march-april, do you think we're still trying to figure out how to work from home? I've been working from home for 16 months now and our company has never done better. So please stop using COVID as an excuse.Where is gow2, hogwart legacy, lego games, king of fighters, and tons of games.
I will do simple word so your brain can comprehend it. Games are made by a group of people. With lockdown in 2020, people weren't working in office. Thus slowed the process of making games. Then you have to deal with games which has motion caps (hell blade 2). Since those games need group interaction, and it was impossible last year.
Hope you can understand it. Not every company is heartless like you, who wants to pump out games nonstop, during a world wide crisis.
The games you are talking about weren't delayed because of COVID, they were delayed because incompetence. Halo's delay for example had nothing to do with COVID. GoW was never intended for release this year, that was a blatant lie by Sony. They didn't even have a single image to share. It's going to come out 2023 or at the end of 2022. There was never a date for Hogwarts legacy (which has been in development since like 5 years ago) nor King of Fighters, so please stop with the bs.
