Red Dead Redemption 2: anche EA, dopo Ubisoft, festeggia per il ritardo

Il CFO di Electronic Arts commenta positivamente il rinvio di Red Dead Redemption 2 alla seconda metà del 2018

In una recente conferenza con gli investitori di Electronic Arts, il CFO Blake Jorgensen ha illustrato i piani della compagnia per i prossimi mesi, indicando nel ritardo di Red Dead Redemption 2 una grande opportunità per EA e per tutti gli attori dell’industria multimilionaria dei videogiochi:

“What we’ve found historically, we’ve had many times where we’ve gone into quarters that looked daunting because of the competition. Think back to Grand Theft Auto V when it came out, and what we actually found is it grows the overall market. It drives console sales.

Oftentimes, many of those titles get bundled to help drive or reduce the price of a console for the consumer, and it drives excitement in the marketplace, and we like that. It benefits the consumer and it benefits us because it generates a lot of buzz around games.”

“So I don’t think it bothers us, but it excites us, I’d say instead. And you might remember, no Red Dead Redemption 2 that was originally in the plans for our third quarter, fourth quarter of the calendar year, so that does open up a little bit of opportunity, I think, for everybody.”

Le dichiarazioni di Jorgensen ci riportano inevitabilmente alla memoria le parole pronunciate qualche giorno fa dal Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez in merito alla decisione assunta da Rockstar Games e Take-Two di rinviare l’uscita di RDR 2 a metà 2018:

“Clearly the fact that there is no Red Dead Redemption 2 is a positive for our fiscal year 2018. This is something that we had taken into our financial assumptions. So the absence of that game is of course giving us a better window for the launch of some of our games.
At this thime, however, is too early to say what kind of impact Red Dead Redemption 2′s delay could have for the next months, obviously we have more confidence but we think it’s too early to change our guidance.”

Nel corso degli ultimi mesi del 2017, Electronic Arts ha già pianificato il lancio di titoli come Need for Speed Payback, Star Wars Battlefront II, FIFA 18 e tutti gli altri titoli EA Sports. Red Dead Redemption 2, invece, è atteso al lancio nel corso del 2018. La nuova epopea western di Rockstar Games, con tutta probabilità, vanterà funzionalità aggiuntive per i possessori di PlayStation 4 Pro e Xbox One X come texture ad altissima definizione, risoluzione 4K (nativamente o con upscaling), HDR, una maggiore profondità di campo e ombre più nitide.
