So what are your predictions as to how it will turn out?
If I had to bet, it will be like Witcher 3 on launch: competant, polished and very flawed, with a story that won't be too special. However, once again, because the rest of the industry is dogshit by comparison it will once again become the most underraterino best gamerino evar in the eyes of consoomers, despite it being only above average in a less shitty world.
Tbh part of me wants to see it bomb as an overproduced mess so the "gamers" would realize all companies are shit.
Also there is zero chance the end result will be worth the unpaid crunch hours of the actual programmers.
