I also agree, but I truly believe they looked at March and said to themselves, “okay we can screw Ubisoft, Bandai Namco, and Sega, along with ourselves, or we can push the game a month and take the piss from consumers over the “early 2018” label. It’s a small price to pay for missing a window by 20 days. And there’s nothing in April anyway. This is a much better release date for everyone.
As far as the rest of the games, I can see Detroit coming in May still and Spider-Man in June/July. Yes I know, that means Spider-Man misses “first half of 2018” like Shawn Layden said, but it’ll be fine. People are going to forgive Spider-Man.
I think Detroit has to come out before E3 because if people see that game in the conference they are going to be throwing mud at Quantic Dream and Sony, especially as more of the story behind the studio’s toxicity comes out. It would be smart to release that game before people get a chance to publicly attack Sony at a game show over it.
As far as Days Gone goes, if it releases in August/September, great that’s fantastic. If it’s later, keep it two weeks before/after CoD, Red Dead, and Battlefield, and don’t let it release on the same day as two other games. If it gets its own day in October it’ll be completely fine.
Have no idea where Dreams and Concrete Genie fit in.
