According to current information, some developer studios will deliberately avoid planned features in games in order not to jeopardize the release in 2020. Home office and the limited productivity due to the current situation slow down the development of games. In the end there were also some shifts.
The corona virus pandemic is currently somewhat restricting game development. Many studios currently work in the home office, which is why 100 percent of normal productivity cannot always be achieved. In the past few days, this has already made itself felt through various shifts. For example, The Last of Us Part 2 has been postponed indefinitely. And Death Stranding for PC will also appear as expected a month later.
However, according to a recent report by the New York Times, other developer studios seem to be taking a different path. Instead of a new release, features, levels and other things will probably be deleted from a game here so that the title can continue to be released on time in 2020. However, the anonymous sources have not revealed what the title is. Recently, companies such as Ubisoft, CD Projekt Red and Activision have also commented on the current situation.
In the case of Ubisoft, for example, some projects are moved back and forth between individual studios in different countries in order to comply with the relevant regulations in the country. But Ubisoft also works from the home office. CD Projekt Red announced that Cyberpunk 2077 may have a day-one patch that adds a few voices to the voice actors. Here too, the work cannot be continued as usual. The next-gen consoles are also still planned for 2020.
