After a disappointing sales result, ‘Marvel’s” Guardians Of TheGalaxy” sequel looks unlikely
I am curious about this: WasMarvel’sls’ Guardians of the Galaxy any game of the year last year? This is not me trying to drag the game. People were surprised at how good the game was after being released in October. I believe this was due to people being wary of Marvell’s scavengers. Our review gave it an 8. We described it as a” “game with deep themes about grief and loss”.” It was also in the GAMINGbible top ten of 2021.
Qualitdoesn’t always translate into sales, unfortunately. According to Eurogamer, a representative director Yosuke Masuda stated that the game did not perform as they had hoped. This is a bad sign for future follow-up.
Matsuda stated that the HD Games sub-segment launcheMarvel’s lsM’Guardians of the Galaxy during Q3.
Tgame’se’s launch sales were lower than we expected despite solid reviews. We have seen sales growth since we launched sales initiatives in November 2021, and they will continue into the new year. We platitle’screase sales to compensate for ttitle’se’s slow start.
Wgames’nt wrong? It is common to attribugames’es’ poor performEnix’so poor advertising. However, last week, SquaEnix’sx’s E3 presentation showed lots of Guardians of the Galaxy. Eurogamer points out that it was released at a busy time in the year, with other major titles like Metroid Dread and Far Cry6 leading the release schedule.
Square Enix will not be making any follow-up to a game failing to meet its commercial goals. This is disappointing news for all fans of the game. The statement about increasing sales further does contain some good information. Square Enix could offer some very attractive sale pripeople’shey want to get the game in mopeople’se’s hands. Or, the game could be added as a Game Pass option, which would increase its popularity and demand for a sequel. We will have to wait and watch..
