Bethesda had an absolutely stellar E3 panel this year, the game studio showed off footage from four of its games in the works – “Fallout 4,” “Doom,” “Dishonored 2” and “BattleCry”. With the first three they absolutely nailed it, each of those titles became a must have for any serious gamer’s collection.
Which makes the solid yet soft response to “BattleCry” stand out all the more. Admittedly the two-team based arena game was the lowest profile of the group, but the comparisons to “Team Fortress 2” were apparent and the reaction wasn’t enthusiastic. At last weekend’s gaming EB Expo in Sydney, Australia there was no playable version of the game on display which surprised people.
Progress Bar reached out to the company to asked them what the status of the game was. The response: “We have concerns about the Battlecry game and whether it is meeting the objectives we have for it. We are evaluating what improvements the game needs to meet our quality standards. The studio remains busy during this process on multiple projects.”
The game itself faces stiff competition from others in this arena in coming months including “Battleborn,” “Overwatch” and the multiplayer melee game “For Honor” which had a rousing E3 reception.
