PUBG managed to sell 30 million copies looking like a horrible piece of crap, you can bet the major publishers are looking into tearing into that $$$ by investing in slightly more overhead than "nothing at all."

Fortnite but instead of building structures, 100 players get airdropped into a DOS prompt and have to code a battle royale game.

I'm waiting for Peter Molyneux to announce his Battle Royale game

it's all hosted on one server and there can only be 100 players playing at any one time, no more. If you die you have to buy a new copy of the game and wait in line until its your turn to play again

Because money drives how publishers invest their money and where they invest it. If the games you like the most are primarily single-player driven experiences then you're already well acquainted with the mid-tier studio holocaust of the past decade and how every major multiplatform AAA release has homogenized into a few service-based MP shootman products. And no, the fact that good SP games still get released does not reverse the overall trend.

Yeah I am one of the dumbasses that enjoys FPS single player campaigns and CoD not having one in favor of "an unspecified competitive multiplayer mode" is the worst

Basically this.


And the exact same consolidation has happened in film, too.

Onward to burgers!

I remember seeing the movie, Battle Royale, years ago and thinking that a video game in a style/setting like that would be incredible. I've yet to play any BR games and probably won't ever. I guess younger me was right about how popular it would be but also mistaken in my own interests. Now it's just the latest fad that will undoubtedly go the way of Overwatch clones, MOBAs, and all those brown shooters of days gone by.

It's not exactly the same thing but TLoU Factions is the game that inherited the mantle from Spies v Mercs/SOCOM, and added in some Streets of Rage beat'emup chops as a bonus.

The best bet for that kind of thing going forward is if 2LoU comes out and successfully updates the paired-down 4v4 of Factions without loving up the formula with a bunch of bells and whistles and lootboxes and costumes and supermoves and skilltrees and ipad crossplay.

I doubt it'll happen since TLoU Factions was lightning in a bottle and I don't trust Naughty Dog to know WHAT they got right and WHY. But a goon can hope
