Long life to Embark studio and its fabulous procedural artists dream team !
On June 9 2015 Ready At Dawn studio announced that it will publish games independently from now on. It seems that the developer has parted ways with Sony after the unsuccessful release of the PS4 exclusive The Order 1886 videogame.
The project got panned by gamers and critics alike. An anonymous claimed that Sony decided to drop Ready At Dawn one month after the release of The Order 1886. The publisher will retain full IP rights which means the possibility of future sequels. According to a recent interview by Ready at Dawn founder Ru Weerasuriya, the studio wanted to continue working on the series and now it seems unlikely.
The Order 1886 hit the market in February of 2015. It was poorly received by gaming journalists and now holds on of the lowest scores for PS4 exclusives on Metacritic with only 63 out of a 100. In less than a month several retailers have put a major discount on it. Ready At Dawn didn’t take this well and even threatened to pull ads over the low review scores.
