This is easily my most anticipated game from the last 2 generations so I feel your pain OP. But it's probably coming along just fine. It's just that they're in no hurry since the current hype cycle is focused on Death Stranding.

Once that's out, I expect we'll see a deluge of info.

Where’s Babylon’s Fall, where’s SMTV, where’s TLOU2, where’s Dead Island 2, where’s WiLD, where’s Bayonetta 3, where’s Skull & Bones, where’s Pikmin 4, where’s Nioh 2, WHERE’S DEEP DOWN????

Enough of announcing games & not showing them enough for me to worry about if they still exist!

Typical Sony game announcement, way too early. We're still waiting on two out of the 'holy trinity' from E3 2015 (!).

How could a game with such poor progression and boss repetition kill it?

Deep down not the best sarcastic example to use.

If TLoU2 releases in the first half of next year, I assume GoT releases in the second half of next year, and probably as a cross gen title for PS4 and PS5.

Secondary item progression beyond the base forms of the shuriken, flame barrel, and firecrackers is completely superfluous and leads to you being punished in combat for experimenting, both by dying over and over hoping that maybe your new piece of equipment will be more effective than simple parries and counter attacks, and the need to then farm emblems as a consumable.

The boss/mini boss repetition speaks for itself with a number of generic spear and sword bosses repeated throughout given more health and damage. 4 headless, 3 drinking samurai, 3 longshadows, 2 bulls.

But yes sekiro killed an unreleased game.

I'll be extremely disappointed if the Ninja theme inspired Japanese game they've decided to copy the combat from was Sekiro and not goddamn Ninja Gaiden.

But no, they're not going to copy either.

Oh no no I wasn't agreeing that Sekiro killed Ghost lol

I just don't agree with the progression and boss repetition part (they all felt different enough to me). I experimented plenty with equipment and never got punished for it at all, I also remember by the Headless Ape I had about 500 Spirit Emblems so that was never an issue. I was actually scared it would be annoying like the Blood Vials in Bloodborne but I was swimming in Emblems and there were also tons of tons of Idols so it never felt like a drag to get back to the boss.
To each their own , Sekiro was near perfect for me.

Everyone complained that Sony was showing too much of their games too early so we get nothing now.

I mean don’t sell your PS4 just because it’s gone quiet. Loads of games coming out now and for years to play.

But I imagine they gave a spring-fall 2020 release and they’re taking their time. I’m down for whatever so long as it does come out eventually. Looks amazing imo and I love the setting, vibe.

I thought Sekiro, Nioh 2, and Ghost of Tsushima were coming out this year.

What a fool I was.

lmao y'all fukken silly

Me: remember this game that was revealed in 2017 with a significant announcement demo in 2018 and now radio silence a year later just checking up now, a few months from next gen

ResetERA: cHIlL mAN itS iN DeVelOPmEnT HyPE culTUrE haS GonE tOo FaR??? hA ha It iS a WIi2 XclUSive GOT EEM that will teach u 2 be interested in a vidya game on this enthusiast website
Despite your hyperbolic attitude, here is a real answer (which Sammy also kind of gave)

A lot of big games are coming to PS5, that also happen to be PS4 titles. However, while working on making sure the game runs well on both, there is a lot that has to go into making a "next gen" looking version of a game that will likely otherwise be identical to on the current gen. Rather than spend any time making another demo, they are churning away at actual development for PS4 / Pro mode, and then a next-gen version or mode.

For example, TLOU pt2 may be missing specific features that the PS5 will allow, such as ray-traced reflections, or dynamic hair simulation, cloth simulation, fluid dynamics, volumetric atmospheric elements, increased level of deformation and physical objects in a scene, and so on.

Basically, Sony is "crouching" right now, to do a high jump next year when they finally reveal the next-gen PlayStation, and make a case for why people should upgrade.

My insider sources are saying that games take a long time to make

Will check back in once I have confirmation

Remember when Sony said they’d stop announcing games too early and immediately after revealed Ghosts? Those were good times.

Kind of Sony's fault though for announcing it entirely too early. Same for TLOU2 and Death Stranding for that matter. They like to announce a game with a trailer....say absolutely nothing about it for a year, show one more trailer....and go radio silent until it's time for the marketing push. Leads to people questioning its existence or development status.

Personally I find it more annoying than anything. I don't need constant news about a game, but don't want to tease it out for 4 years either. Sure it's hard to keep things secret until closer to launch but throwing out a trailer or a little bit of info helps curb the desire to be internet famous for 3 days and leak stuff. Idk...I'm rambling at this point and just greatly prefer a shorter announce-release schedule.
Nah I love knowing early.

IMO the problem is not that emblems are hard/easy to get, but having 500+ emblems doesn't matter when you can only bring in 20 in a fight lol. And this measly 20 emblems is split between Prosthetic tools, Ninjutsu, Combat arts and some unique items is quite baffling.

On the topic of tools- You're never exactly punished for experimenting with tools, but at the same time you're never really rewarded for using them outside of the specific counters that they were designed for. It's why everyone agrees that the 3 best tools are the shuriken, umbrella and firecrackers because those are effective against a lot more enemies and they consume the least amount of emblems.

It's weird how people are fine knowing an album, movie, or other project is in production and will be out years later, but if its a videogame OH NOES, WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG?!

It's cool wondering where the game may be at marketing wise, and whatnot, but some of the concern stuff always makes me chuckle when it comes up.
I'm not big on knowing any of that stuff early. Though...half the time I forget it exists before it comes out. *Shrug* to each their own

Someone said in a locked rumour thread that it already looked like a PS5 game at the reveal and at this point it’s clear that we’ll get just that, a PS5 game.

I don’t mind, bring the nextgen awesomeness, I stopped playing on PS4 anyway after GoW and has been waiting for PS5 since then.

It looks like Second Son, and Uncharted 4, and God of War, etc. The idea that it was a PS5 game when explicitly stated it was running on PS4 Pro is silly.

Why would Sony / Suckerpunch not release the game on a platform that has 100 million units out?

That is false.

The best source we have says the games comes in the first half of 2020 and no, the game is not exclusive do the ps5

Time will tell, I wouldn't mind it though, in fact I would love it. Let PS4 rest in peace, make sure PS5 gets a flying start instead! :) Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us part 2 as PS5 launch games. What could possibly counter that??

Time will telll you that both does titles are going to release on the ps4, Sony always does this, they support the console until there last year and with BC confirmed, there is no reason for does titles to not come to the ps4. And does titles were annouanced as ps4 titles.

And TLOU is also going to get release in the first half

Clearly, these devs aren't sacrificing enough of their well-being yet. Hopefully they crunch for months on end to deliver this game for you.

Why do you want to overshadow earlier releases? Give it time. Let DS release then we get a lot of coverage for TLoU2. Only then will we get more coverage on GoT.

What happened is Sony skipped E3 2019. Otherwise, there probably would've been some sort of stage presentation with some gif-able moments.

Yup, they played sekiro and went..........."emergency meeting!!!!!"

It screams decent ps5 launch title to me.
I dunno how one can say Sekiro killed it when it’s not even the same genre aside from having a Katana and using feudal Japan as a setting. One has fantasy element and one is grounded and has ties to actual history.

It’s a very superficial way of comparing things. Like comparing Sleeping Dogs/GTA and Yakuza

I don’t think the game warrants a ‘where is it?’ ‘vapourware’ type of responses.

I have no doubts this game will come out, but it's crazy that it will take Sucker Punch more than 6 years to release their next title. You see this sometimes with the first game of a studio in a console generation. But a second one? That's very rare I think.
