Sometimes, it takes a miscalibrated decision, and that’s the tragedy. Everyone remembers these unbearable enemies we found in all games. But today, we’re expanding that category to last-minute hiccups that studios can avoid. Here are our five favorites in this category!
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Removed Events
Activision doesn’t always make the right Call of Duty decisions. Black Ops 4 proves that canceling its event to go with the trend and offer a battle royale mode. Except that many players want to immerse themselves in a blockbuster-worthy cinematic experience. Delete a story for hours before diving into multiplayer.
Cut the second part of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an excellent sequel to Human Revolution. But if you do, you realize that the end can come suddenly in a very mild confrontation. According to the information (with reservations), this is the fault of publisher Square Enix. The Japanese studio wanted to split the title into two parts. And with sales disappointing, we imagine players will never see the sequel in color.
Star Wars: Battlefront 2’s Last Minute In-App Purchases
If the Battlefront remake wasn’t a huge success, this game is excellent entertainment. Except his sequel did worse and worse. EA responded to its greed at the last minute with a slew of in-app purchases, some of which went faster. What a shame for a title that pays the entire base pot! Thanks to various leaks, we know that microtransactions are over (even if tweezers!).
Metal Gear Solid 5 Free Hideo Kojima
There would be no Metal Gear Solid without Hideo Kojima, and vice versa. So when Konami parted with it in the full development of Episode 5, it was a disaster. If we’ll never know what the creators have in store, the story is flawed, just like the game stages. The final scene was decidedly rushed, reflecting the lack of a reliable director. With Hideo Kojima, maybe Metal Gear Solid 5 will be an even more significant achievement. We will never know.
The solo version of Resident Evil 3
A remake of Resident Evil 3 is planned to be released alongside the remake of 2. A title that is far less complete than its predecessor with a reduced lifecycle focus and an action focus. Inevitably, Resident Evil 3 was lower than 2, and many players avoided it. Too bad the 2-in-1 pack with the third piece is perfect for dessert.
