XQC WARNS HALO INFINITE DEVS NOT TO MAKE OVERWATCH MISTAKE AFTER LAUNCH HYPE
Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has issued Halo Infinite devs 343 Industries and the franchise’s super-sized fanbase a warning.
Do not fall into the same trap Blizzard and Overwatch players did in 2016 after their own successful release.
“This is the same mistake as Overwatch,” he warned. “200k at launch… so cool, Halo is huge! But it might not stay that way.
Let’s keep boasting these hype, announcement-driven analytics from one day or months, years. That’s a good idea, never gone wrong before.
Jesus guys, don’t put stock in early analytics. Overwatch did that, “34 million” for years, but it was stagnating. “34 million!” they say, but on a good day 8k were watching, and not many more playing.
“I think people have moved on from Halo,” he said about Infinite’s chances to stay popular. “It’s slow and outdated. It lacks serious pace in its gameplay.
