Metro Exodus programer raspravlja o bojkotu PC platforme za nastavke zbog bombardiranja parom



Update 2: February 5th, 2019: A post on TwitLonger from the official @MetroVideoGame handle has looked to bring a more positive outlook to this whole scenario, in an attempt to bridge the gap between a lone developer's sentiment and the entire 4A Games studio. The post follows: The entire handling of this issue has seen wrong turns of hand on all parts involved, the way this particular editor sees it (my, Ravenlord's, sole opinion and not TPU's, so as to avoid a Metro-style situation here), whether it be Valve, 4A Games, the lone developer who made the initial comments, and yes, the particular users in the Metro community that reacted too passionately, inflamming what was already a sticky situation. I, for one, will never see the justice in extrapolating one 'wrong' move as a reason for bringing down either the trust or confidence in a whole team of people working hard to bring their creative vision to life. But I suppose gaming is like a relationship, in a way. You can read the original story below.

Čitava saga Metro Exodus postajala je ružnija kako se približavamo datumu lansiranja. Ranije ovog tjedna izvijestili smo kako je Metro Exodus skočio u trgovinu Epic Gamesa na vremenski ekskluzivni način do veljače 2020. godine, a Valve i THQ Nordic iznijeli su izjave o ovom potezu. Potez je očito bio nepopularan, i vjerojatno iz valjanih razloga, ali to je dovelo do toga da se rulja okrene Metro 2033 i Metro: Posljednje svjetlo ostavljajući ogroman broj negativnih kritika na odgovarajućim stranicama trgovine Steam. Ne slažemo se s takvim ponašanjem, ali niti oproštavamo ono što se dogodilo sljedeće. Korisnik koji stoji na ruci scynet na ruskim forumima Gameinator tvrdio je da je jedan od programera u franšizi Metro igre i izrazio je razočaranje, pa čak i bijes zbog bombardiranja pregleda koji je u tijeku. Možda su je emocije obuzele, kad je tada efektno zaprijetio da se serija Metro opet neće pojaviti na PC platformi i biti ekskluzivna konzola, nastavi li se takvo ponašanje i ako se PC igrači zauzvrat odluče da ne kupuju Metro Exodus kao rezultat prelazak iz Steam-a u Epic Games Store. Ovdje ćemo napomenuti da (a) identitet navedene osobe nije potvrđen kao stvarni programer za igru ​​i (b) takve su odluke obično u rukama izdavača. Bez obzira na to, obje strane se ovdje ne pokazuju najbolje, a nadamo se da će uskoro hladnije glave prevladati.

An English translation by a native Russian (TechPowerUp user birdie) is seen below. This does not seem as feverous as initial translations make it out to be, however the underlying tones are still applicable to the same bottom line. We also are more confident now that the original poster is a verified employee of 4A Games, and likely a developer on Metro Exodus as well. He/she is no doubt passionate about the work put in to the game, and ideally recognizes that the deeds (however undeserving the review bombing of past games may be) of some members of the PC gaming community does not speak for everyone. At the same time, this does not mean that 4A Games/Koch Media/THQ Nordic/Epic Games Store are all blameless in this debacle either, just that here too the work of few is affecting the rest adversely.
