Varric, is that you?Well, shit.
Yes ! And no more story trailers, i want some gameplay vids, both and PC and PS4/One. i accept your appologies but we deserve something in exchange for our patience !One thing I hope (as many others) is that this announcement doesn't lead into another couple of months of silence, that would be painful. Oh, and no more rehashed / redundant interviews, please.
Hard to say, if they really delayed the game because they needed more time for polishing, some teams should be available to work on those DLCs, so I hope they will be included in the game. But if there are more serious problems, all teams are probably still working on game and they had to push development of those DLCs back.Here's a thought: what about the 16 pieces of free dlc? Sorry if this has already been brought up but I was curious. Surely they have enough time to release them with the full game now right? What's gonna happen with that?
Whilst I'm on the subject why were they working on DLC if they were so busy, desperately trying to finish the game before. I guess the guy's working on them didn't have anything else to do. It's just it sounds like they have more to do than just polish the game if they need to delay it again. Anyway, not trying to start a conspiracy theory here, just wondering out loud.
Could anyone more familiar with the game development process please inform me to how these things usually work?
Crap i didn't even think about that. I think this delay might pose a legit threat to my exam results, 'cause i have no willpower when it comes to making myself revise. :hrhr:Perhaps push the date back a few more weeks? Just so it is released after I've finished my exams for that semester.
The old trailers had a lot of bugs, unfinished and poor looking stuff in them too. I think CDPR are just honest about how the game looks at the current point of development. And don't try and hide the flaws like other devs. Sadly that is backfiring on them now. Here are some screen grabs from a couple of the older trailersIts just baffling to me. Every time a new trailer comes out or new screens that don't look up to par and cause an uproar, fans and devs alike come and say that "these areas of the game aren't finished yet and it'll look way better trust us"
Why on EARTH would you put the bad looking and unfinished parts into the trailers and screens?
I mean how is it possible that a gameplay trailer in 2013 looks better than it does now? I mean I have total faith in CDPR and as shown from Witcher 2 the game's visuals increased in awesomeness through dev time but..aren't they going in the wrong direction?
Also how is it possible that some areas are graphically awesome and some aren't? I thought the game was largely seamless? What do they mean you just walk into a field and suddenly the textures are bland and the reflections and lighting are worse?
I am pretty confident that by the release the game will be even better than it looked at the beginning. I have faith in CDP. But..I just don't understand their whole PR marketing technique.
