So many delays. They should announce release dates only when they're sure they can make it.

This.

The past 5 years we've seen nothing but delays till the following year one after another and in some cases, we've been shown trailers from yrs ago and still nothing but delays.

I miss the days when we used to see trailers for games that were due out in 6 months to a year tops and not 2-5 years ahead of time.

I wish we didn't even have to hear about crunch, mostly because I know the general populace doesn't care enough to stop buying said games with crunch in order to punish publishers to step in line and sort it out.

Well damn. Probably for the best as the game seems very ambitious and I want them to take the time they need to get it right, but still a bit sad that premature release windows that can't be reached have become the standard.

Ha Colin Moriarty was correct, after all. His source told him months ago that this was likely gonna be delayed, but then shortly after, WB doubled down on it coming in 2022.

Sucks, but this will give me more time to finish my ridiculous backlog.

Hopefully all of these delays are to ensure more reasonable working conditions. At this point though, companies should really just say things like "target date" instead of making promises they can't deliver on.

Now Forspoken is sandwiched between GOW of War and Hogwarts. It's going to be messy :(

I wonder how many 2023 releases will get pushed to 2024 to avoid a more crowded release window

Seriously! The first half of 2023 is looking "GOATED" as I hear the kids say these days lol

And how many are left for holiday 2022?

Not many lol. The biggest releases for that time period are Bayonetta 3, Pokémon Scarlet/Violet, God of War Ragnarok, The Callisto Protocol, CoD Modern Warfare II, and Gotham Knights are I guess what most would consider to be the "major" holiday releases. There's definitely plenty of other notable releases for sure, but those I would say are the biggest.

That is sad, but as long as it allows the game to be better and devs to be less stressed out I'm totally fine with it.
