They probably aren't "allowed" to Tweet with their official account either.

Considering that both Meagan and Morrigan were made to work exclusively on Avengers, yes they probably aren't allowed to use their official Tweet either.

Not saying that it makes sense, because it doesn't, but "sense" is not really a word that is in Square Enix's vocabulary.

I've never seen a so-called AAA studio's Twitter account get abandoned like this before. Literally every other game developer care to keep their social activity somewhat alive, even if the game is a few years old, and if they are working on other games. But not these developers. Unless they get paid, they aren't doing a ****ing thing.

Maybe Square Enix is to blame, but Crystal Dynamics is most certainly not blameless either. Their low morale has been on display for years now. It just goes to show that they don't give a flying f*** unless there's some money to be made.

Not to bring Naughty Dog into this, but look at how they are communicating and treating their fans. It's a whole different world compared to Crystal Dynamics, and it certainly contributes to their success because they genuinely don't want to screw over their fans. It costs nothing to send out a tweet, but it can reward them a lot instead of ignoring the entire fan base until they need our money again.

We can bet our sweet asses that they will come back and say whatever the hell they need to say to sell games (completely knowing it's mostly lies), but as soon as it's done, we get completely ghosted. And the game will be nothing like they said and be full of broken promises.

I bet that if tomorrow this devs would release a 100% classic game you would not give a **** about how little they post on social media.

Oh yes, that is very likely to happen, and what a sharp and strong point you make, Costel. If they released a game tomorrow, they'd probably place an ad in a physical newspaper and nowhere else to get maximum exposure.

Great video, I'm surprised how much the narrative director knew of the game's design. Shame the speedrun skips so many areas since that could've made for juicy commentary.

lowkey happy to hear them trash the forced walking segments like that kinda confirms it's not really a game design choice imo
