They should have let Nixxes worked on this instead. Other PlayStation ports outside of God of War are quite bad as well though, from a technical pov.

Nixxes handled both Spider-Man ports, and they seem to have done a great job. I'm guessing they're currently working on a bigger port atm. Ghost of Tsushima perhaps.

God of War was a flawless PC port! Hopefully that same studio is currently working on porting Ragnarök to PC.

Sounds like it was rushed to gain traction from the TV series.

Co-development between ND and Iron Galaxy.

Both usually do a great job in the technical department. Iron Galaxy helped with Metroid Prime Remastered for example.
So that makes it especially disappointing.

Iron Galaxy has a very mixed record of PC ports. Arkham Knight being their most notorious. They ported the Uncharted collection back in October, and it was okay, but still needed a lot of post-launch work. But this port is almost up there with Arkham Knight to be their worst port yet.

But tbf to Iron Galaxy, Warner Bros forced Arkham Knight out knowing how bad of a state the game was in. So, I wouldn’t be surprised if Sony wanted to capitalize on the success of the show in this instance.

Yeah, I think it is very likely that they wanted to launch while the show is still top of mind. Sony isn't used to having to worry about technical issues with their games. This may serve as a wake up call to them in that regard.

Nixxes has a really good track record with their PC ports, whilst iron galaxy has the bad track record.

Why on earth would you cheap out on one of your biggest IP's like this?.

Most likely a combination of Nixxes having a full workload and ND having previously worked with Iron Galaxy on porting the Uncharted Collection .

It's just so weird, because IG definitely has a better history with their console versions, but a bad rap with their PC ports, and Sony could have just delayed this until Nixxes was made available.

The pressure point would have been getting it out to take advantage of the popularity of the TV series.

They could have released it during the window of the show, or even when it was about to end, yet they decided to release the game after the show ended it's run.

I feel like this was just poorly timed.

Well that obviously was their intent, but then they delayed its initial release, they must have thought the extra month was enough time to fix things while still being timely enough to gain traction from the show but it ended up biting them on the ass.

What a shambles. Should not have been released in this state.

What a major issue, should have supervised the project closely.
