More than a month has passed since the release of Redfall, the latest game from Arkane Austin (Prey) and the Texan studio continues to work on improving the performance of the title, as shown by the recently released update. However, the worst opening in the company’s history (according to Metacritic) has taken its toll.
Despite this, at Microsoft they continue to have a clear position with one of their great assets. In this sense, we have now been able to know first-hand what is the future of Arkane after the release of Redfall. And it is that it has been Matt Booty, head of Xbox Game Studios, who has broadly told Axios (via Eurogamer) what will happen to Arkane from now on.
What is the future of Arkane after the release of Redfall?
In the aforementioned talk, Booty was asked about the future of Arkane and about if I would continue to be active as before. This was his response.
“That’s the plan right now. They are hard at work on updates and continued content for Redfall. We want to support them so that they are able to continue working to offer the game they had in mind”.
Although Booty has made more than clear the Xbox support for Arkane In his post-launch plans for Redfall, he has not spoken as such about the future of the company once the work of correcting the problems with the opening of the vampire and open world game is finished. Meanwhile, Arkane Austin has already released a major patch that has fixed many of the issues and that has regenerated interest in the game from a good part of the community.
Phil Spencer also talked about Redfall upon its release and apologized to fans for not living up to expectations. Of course, the CEO of Xbox wanted to clarify that nothing that happened was going to change his roadmap, which goes through give studios creative freedom to work on what they consider most appropriate for the interests of the players.
Redfall, many problems in the process of being solved
During the weeks after the release of the Arkane game we have learned that the project went through internal problems such as the developer march and the hiring from others who didn’t know they were going to work on a multiplayer game. Although the Texan study has already fixed problems, we are still waiting to receive the expected performance mode at 60 frames per second. Remember that Redfall is already available on Xbox Series X|S, PC and Game Pass.
