Brace yourselves, the revolution is coming!

The earthquake called restructuring of a beloved company seems to come to an end. After selling a few studios, laying off over 1300 people, cancelling some upcoming titles, the CEO of Embracer Group has come up with a bold strategy for the future - he is going to make better games!

Brace yourselves, the revolution is coming!

I knew that one day the revolution in the gaming industry will start, but I never expected that it will happen on 29th March 2024, after several waves of lay-offs in the companies. Yet, CEO of Embracer Group, Lars Wingefors, will lead the charge towards the bright future for the industry by introducing... better games!

In his recent interview with PC Gamer he stated, "we are ending the restructuring programme now, end of March, and the Gearbox restructuring process has been part of that programme". When asked about future plans he said, "to increase profitability and cashflow generation (...) simply making better products and games".

No wonder he makes big bucks in Embracer Group, I mean, it takes a lot of effort to come up with such a clever plan for the future. We can only imagine where Embracer would be right now if he would come up with that great plan years ago. But also this raises one interesting question - does that mean that up to that point they were holding back and publishing only mediocre titles?

Nevertheless, now the gloves are off, and Embracer Group is going to offer better products! Where that revolution could lead us? What will be next? Restaurants will offer clean plates? Trains are gonna arrive on time? Google is gonna start paying taxes?

Oh Netflix, never change!

Over 6 months after introduction of Netflix Games - yes, it has happened, and don’t worry you’re not the only one that missed that - quite interesting numbers were published. Or rather one number - less than 1%.

Steam blocks NFTs and cryptocurrency

Steam just took a stand against NFTs in the games available on the platform. Is this the first sign of getting back to normal?

Last Oasis could be another victim of its players

Cheating is serious problem for many online games, but equally serious is the lack of ways to get rid of the players that do not follow the rules. Unless you do something radical, like Last Oasis recently did.

The end is near?

Abermore, one of the dozens, if not hundreds, of titles that premiered in recent days on Steam made me think that the end of an era is near. Yes, you guessed it, Abermore is a steaming pile of garbage. To be fair it is not the only one and not the worst one that I have seen recently.

Cyberpunk 2077 is getting better

Or to be precise slightly better. For some users. Yes, CD Projekt Red, finally came up with patch 1.5 and... it’s still far, far, far from what was expected from the game.

Cowboys and idiots

I recently revisited old British sitcom called Cowboys, about inept builders taking jobs they are not qualified for, doing them as quickly and as cheaply as possible and then running away with the money. Few days later GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition premiered and I got the strange feeling of deja vu.

Star Citizen will never be finished

Star Citizen will never be finished

And I’m not sure if this is a good news or a bad news. I’m not even sure if I still care.

Is Wargaming collapsing? Unfortunately no, but the situation in the company might not be as great as they want you to believe.
