Jokes on you, it's almost 2 years since Horizon 2 came out.  

They'll announce the complete edition for PS5, and then it'll come out on PC 5 months from now.  
Although maybe this is the one game I want on pc. Skyrim like mods could help push Sony to make the sequel a true rpg.

helldivers is looking pretty good to me.   this new trailer has some very killzone vibs to it.   i'm glad they aren't trying to sell this for $70 but i'm still not sure how well this can do at $40.   era seems happy but even $40 seems steep for a GaaSified game.

not sure yet about buying it myself.  with a Feb launch i'll probably still be playing BG3 with my coop buddy but maybe we'll be getting close to the end.

DriveClub still looks amazing. I still pissed that Sony cancelled DriveClub. This could of been Sony's Forza.

It's a shame yeah, but it just didn't get any traction. Honestly I just feel it was ahead of it's time in some ways.

Well Sony could of at least let them release a sequel. Evolution Studios  was a solid studio with WRC and MotorStorm under their belt. We could of had a couple more MotorStorms and DriveClub's if Sony didn't get rid of them. Instead we have Polyphony release a game every 10 years. PD didn't even release a game the whole of last gen. Let that sink in.

Wut. They released GT Sport in 2017. And while it was in 2022, PS4 still got GT7

I agree with you that they should have kept them and gave them another shot at least. But for some reason Driveclub didn't resonate with players like Forza Horizon did.

as a non fan of racing games....

GT and drive club felt redundant.  that said MS has done well with Forza and horizon.  instead of shutting down evolution Sony should have mandate evolution distance themselves from driving sim a bit more.   motorstorm was loved and very distinct from GT.

Sorry, I should of said mainline games lol. Sports only released because they couldn't hit their targets. Didn't even realise that PS4 got GT7. Probably just forgot. But sill 9 years between games.

I feel DriveClub wasn't really a driving sim. Felt totally different to GT.

perhaps.  I didn't play it.  I will say the marketing was very into how realistic the weather was and other things like that.  maybe they only meant to say graphics but the message I received was it was a game trying to be as realistic as possible.  it felt redundant.  

and yeah they talked about clubs.  maybe if they didn't launch with a disastrously bad online that could have saved it.  

I heard in the end they got it working but it took too long to matter.

They had a disastrous launch. That definitely didn't help. But in the 9 years they were owned by Sony, they made 4 different styles of racing game (motorstorm mainline titles, motorstorm RC, driveclub and driveclub bike dlc), created 2 franchise, released 5 games and 1 dlc.
Evolution was a very good studio.

Polyphony said they considered GT Sport a Mainline game
That's cap from PD

I generally agree with you.  evo at least deserved a second chance.  it can't be the expectation that every game is a hit.

I think chances are good that under the current market, that Sony would have kept Evo.

For quite a while SIE's model was to stay pretty lean.

Has naughty dog made a ps5 game yet? Sony needs to have a hard look at them imo. Look at insomniac
