Alan Wake Dev Thinks Long Term Updates Will Replace Sequels
Remedy Games EVP Avi Jarvilehto recently told IncGamers that he believes games will eventually start working as long-term services as opposed to a single product.
He believes games will make more use of lengthy and constant updates instead of full-on sequels.nd attempt to create games as a long-term service, rather than an experience that can be consumed, finished and set aside.
“I think that’s a trend that will only continue to move forward,” Jarvilehto told IncGamers. “How fast the other platforms are going to move in that direction remains to be seen, but I would expect in the next five or 10 years we’re going to move ever closer to the point where games are more like services and it’s more about the experience and getting involved long-term with the game… rather than shipping constant sequels.”
So what say you readers? Would you prefer constant updates or wait for full sequels?
