Is there still room for only games within the industry? Remedy Entertainment, one of the most recent studios in this sector (Alan Wake, Quantum Break, Control) thinks so: “Single-player games are now stronger than ever,” says Tero Virtala, president of the company.
” When we spoke with editors three years ago, many had doubts about the future of [the blockbusters] for a player ” recognizes the executive to Games Industry. ” Now, with the success of many of Sony’s games, the popularity that Ubisoft has shown, we see that single-player games are now stronger than ever ”
As far as Remedy is concerned, Virtala explains that they will continue to make superproductions of the same kind that up to now, and for that they will rely on the same strategies: action games featuring interesting characters. One of the keys to the study now and the foreseeable future. It seems that the rest of the industry is also not the viability of this kind of games. Without going any further, this year premieres Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, an AAA production of EA and Respawn that will come without game features as a service.
