I want to make clear that this is a thing I am afraid off, not something I’m angry about.
I really hope that the devs keep fulfilling their vision for the game, but I am afraid they might not be able to dos so.
At this point, I don’t believe there is a future for this game, for multiple reasons :
The game did not do very well at launch, that’s when most copies of a game are sold, so it probably didn’t make much money.
It has, as far as I know, no exposure from any big streamer or let’s player, so not many people who aren’t already part of the community even hear about tze game. There are a few channels who almost exclusively do GZ content, but most of their viewers already know the game.
Then there’s FNIX Rising.
While the first dlc was quite well recieved, this one, not so much. From what I’ve heard, it’s supposedly to short, seems unfinished and feels more like a techdemo for new game mechanics, for example moving vehicles and artillery.
The console updates are another issue.
The april update alienated a lot of players.
On PC we got a patch, but on PS4 and XboxOne people are either still waiting for a patch, or the patch they got destroyed their saves. Also the fact that for some reason the devs insist on releasing the patch together with the dlc seems to annoy some people.
Then there’s the updates in themselves. Often times they break things.
A service game based around online interaction and a persistent community war effort. A game that can make them much more money, so they’ll probably put their effort into this instead of GZ.
So with all of this, I predict the following will happen:
They patch the game on console, and then that’s it.
