What do you think of when you hear “medium sized” games? Perhaps if you were thinking in terms of scope and budget, you would classify something like A Plague Tale: Requiem or Evil West as “medium”.they come from publishers Delighted to boast the benefits of the double A gamein the end.
Or maybe I should be more specific. I might label a grown indie as “medium” instead. No Man’s Sky, Fall Guys, Among Us.
You wouldn’t expect Bethesda’s RPG juggernauts (Fallout, Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls Online, etc.) to be mid-sized, right? Released in too many formatsLast I heard, Skyrim alone has sold 30 million copies. That was him in 2016. Medium size, indeed.
So it’s pretty surprising that Microsoft is so eager to say that the successor to Skyrim, widely regarded as one of the most successful games of all time, will be a “mid-sized” game.
The quoted source is Microsoft response A UK Competition and Markets Authority study is trying to determine whether the tech giant’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard is healthy for the video game market.
under the heading Decisions about medium-sized games are not evidence of Microsoft’s incentives as they relate to Call of Duty., Microsoft specifically named The Elder Scrolls 6. This identifies him as one example of a medium sized title. Please note that due to the legal nature of the document, some ambiguous language follows.
“Titles such as Elder Scrolls 6 (those not scheduled to be released before) [REDACTED] The final installment of the series will be released in 2011), and other future titles, Microsoft won’t give up $.[REDACTED] Per annual revenue from PlayStation customers or disqualifications. [REDACTED] We just hit 1 million MAU on PlayStation,” reads the statement.
So it can be argued that The Elder Scrolls 6 is indeed a mid-range game. Compared to other mega-hits (read Roblox, Minecraft, Fortnite) that have broad international appeal to many age groups, The Elder scrolls 6 intention be of medium size; For example, as gamers who can’t escape the influence and legacy of The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, it may be huge to us, but in the eyes of the world, it’s not as important as Candy Crush.
You’ll notice from this reply today that we’ve already seen some wild stories, including Microsoft’s allegations. CoD gamers aren’t ‘unique’ or ‘special’and it’s claim Xbox exclusives are a bit awkward compared to their Sony counterparts.
