Assassin’s Creed Odyssey went under fire lately for their DLC involving the main character being required to get married and have a child. Many people out there were upset about this, just as there were people who didn’t see it as a big deal. For today, I want to talk about how Ubisoft stepped into a trap of their own making, and how this is not the first time a developer has done this.
From the stream, this is the cast I did with Traevon Taylor from Ninja 5. We spoke about their first kickstarter, more updates on Buluk’s design, and we even got a live demo.
At the end of 2018, we saw what looks to be the end of the ESports career of Heroes of the Storm, as Blizzard pulled off the dev team to work on other projects. Following that, it was announced that Dragon Ball Fighter Z tournaments were stopped by Toei Animation. Both games have their dedicated fans, and it presents the perfect examples of how ESports titles operate under a tricky relationship between developers, publishers, and fans.
