    Big tech company: Video games make lots of money right? Let's try some of that.

    Three years later: Nevermind.

    I assume because Amazon has a track record of exploiting workers.

    That and Amazon Games was founded 9 years ago, devoured a bunch of indie devs, and has yet to publish anything substantive, while cancelling 80% of the stuff they announced over the years and laying off the developers that were working on them.

    I don't know why, but I thought Amazon would do alright as a game dev.

    I shouldn't have been surprised when all of the games that even make the light of day reflect the UI quality found in their website and Prime service. I pretty much expect New World to be their only release, and unless it sells some 5 million companies, will likely be the studios last release.

    I've played New World quite a bit. Definitely not a 10/10. Definitely different than WoW. Anyone looking for a better WoW shouldn't waste their time since they're too jaded. Unlike WoW, I actually enjoy my time in New World. It hits a lot of check marks for me for what I'm interested in at the moment. It definitely needed a real lot more content from the last time that I played it. I'd rather play the little content that was in New World than all of the World of Warcraft has to offer. Blizzard with their thousands of employees, billions of dollars, 20 years of WoW development and that's the best they can do doesn't cut it anymore.

    To me this is good news. Never cared about LotR setting anyway. It's a bad fantasy world imo.

    Now they will direct focus on other projects, I hope New World gets more attention.

    yep. this.

    if done right, it could be a great thing for the mmo world. i had appreciated it much.

    but: i assume, even if finished by amazon studios, it would be just the next „wow killer“. a lame hearthless standard mmo, quickly produced by a company like Amazon to get a few pieces of another market, they wanna step a foot into. some cheap shit cash grab shit. in the end of the day (or the year) it had faded away as another lame movie license game, never shining, and played by a few die hard fans.

    so maybe its fine, that they give up before they even try.

    i assume New World is just the next „hyped by development/name/studio“ game, forgotten a half year later. not very high hopes here tbh.

    Who told you i was playing WoW, because i didn't and i don't. There are lots of other games, you know? Plus New World is an uninspired generic cash grab anyway.

    They unreleased Crucible, im including that in the games they've released that were a mess. I expect New World to come out and be supported for a year or so, I dont think they ever did a thing for crucible.

    They hired John Smedley who is one of the founders of EverQuest and that gave me some optimism. Not sure if I have any left at this point.

    I am not joining the bandwagon as early as I would have hoped to!
    New world was a pretty decent game when i tried it many months ago, i dont expect it to be a major thing but it should be a pretty good game regardless especially with the extra work the have put in.

    Well I'm bummed, wonder if Tencent simply didn't want to pursue a big budget MMO after picking up Leyou, especially with Riot already making one.

    Folks over at Standing Stone Games/Daybreak probably just breathed a huge sigh of relief given that they're apparently working on a graphical overhaul for LOTRO that would have likely competed against the brand new shiny game.

    Would be good to see an MMORPG outside of WoW, FF ESO, GW2. Maybe New World will do good. My impressions of New World is that it's a mix of early ESO and GW2, leaning on design elements that both games quickly changed because the fans didn't enjoy them. Hopefully it works out.

    Why ? It doesn't affect them in any way.

    It's sad how low that bar is.

    It absolutely does. The two games would likely be releasing in roughly similar windows (at least within a year of each other) and Tencent having multiple big-budget games compete against each other like that (even if they're pretty different in theme/tone/etc.) isn't a smart move.

    Tencent owns Riot too.

    Eh, if enough people boycott a product then it does have an impact. The issue is most people are too addicted and would sooner argue on the internet instead of just walking away from something they no longer enjoy or approve of.

    This is why i won't invest time or money in any Amazon or Google game (if they decide to make games). I expect them to pull the plug any time and i absolutely do not trust them.

    Boycotts do serve a purpose, but its a personal win, a moral victory for yourself to say, 'hey I will stop buying X from X company because they did this thing that's scummy, and so I feel good about myself for not buying it'. But that self serving win isn't going to make a change or impact, most of the people boycotting were probably going to never buy the game anyway, and let's take into account that most of the people who play video games don't even know about what scummy stuff companies are doing behind the scenes, or don't care. Its not laziness, its people living in their bubble watching their favourite ethics youtube channel thinking the world is watching when in fact its a small percentage of the gaming market.

    If you wanna make a change then boycotting is not the way to go. Wanna make a change go to your leaders , your governments, whoever is running and get them to institute a change. ITs cool that only now governments are hearing about the whole loot box stuff and even that I feel we are still miles off.
