2K Games gitt oss mange gode spillopplevelser opp gjennom årene, men de siste årene har vi også fått to store spill som ikke har levert. Dette erkjenner nå Take-Two-sjef Strauss Zelnick under en teknologikonferanse. Han går faktisk som langt som å si at Evolve ikke overrasket dem ettersom det ble utviklet av et eksternt studio, i tillegg til at det var et uvanlig spill. Han sier dessuten at hverken Evolve eller Battleborn er representative for studioets kvalitet:
"I think 2K is doing great. I think when you put out a lot of titles, not everything is gonna work as well as one would like, and Battleborn is an example of that. Evolve is a little bit different. That was bought out of a THQ bankrupcy, and it was developed by an external studio with oversight from 2K, so it's a totally different situation. We knew it was a very unusual title, and it was a bet on an unusual title. It didn't surprise us that consumers had mixed feelings about it.
Battleborn was a disappointment. We've said so publicly, but I don't think that's systemic, because 2K is a company that brings you Civilization, with incredibly high score in the nineties, the company that brings you basketball which scores in the nineties, Xcom 2 and the like where we're known for having very high scores."
Hva tenker du om at Zelnicks uttalelser?
Takk, Dual Shockers.
