Interestingly, we also learn that 100 developers are working on the game, with over 300 people in the credits. That’s definitely quite a large team, so it’s not surprising that the game will need considerable sales to break even.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
