Gwent: The Witcher Card Game Editorials

Games that have us worried – will they meet the expectations?

Hype. Video game marketing is all about hype these days. If you ask a game developer, any game developer, they’ll tell you that their game is the big thing nobody knew they needed. Where did all those flops come from then? Well, adults tend to lie sometimes (or misidentify their target group while conducting a strategic forecast). That’s why some distance and cold analysis is and will always be needed. We’ve assembled a list of upcoming titles that are very promising, including reputable franchises and several ambitious projects, to take a closer look at the things that may go wrong with them. Of course, we do not wish for any of them to become a flop, as there are some very nice titles in the selection, but we can’t ignore warning signs either. Check out our list of games that have us worried.
