The error is evaluated Twitter Striking Distance Studios creator Glen Schofield’s post was removed after it was criticized for appearing to glorify the crisis. A former EA and Activision man – his team is currently working to complete the survival horror Callisto Protocol before starting on December 2 – he said, “we work six to seven days a week […] tiredness, tiredness, COVID, but we’re working.” I continued: “12-15 hours a day. This is a game. Hard work. Lunch, dinner, work. You do it because you love it.”

It was heavily criticized by a number of industry experts, including Schofield Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, who writes books about game development tools. “It’s a culture of crisis defined by a studio head,” he said. “Of course, no one is forced to work crazy hours. But imagine reduced bonuses and no promotion opportunities? ‘You do it because you love it’. Armed passion. That’s why people save their lives from the game.”

After the original Twitter message was deleted, Schofield tried to clarify his comments: “Anyone who knows me knows how passionate I am about the people I work with. I previously tweeted how proud I was of the hard work and hours put in by the team. That was wrong. We value passion and creativity, not long hours. This is how I came across I apologize to the team.”

Work culture at a number of tentpole studios, including top AAA teams like Naughty Dog and Rockstar, has hit the headlines over the past decade – with some trying to improve their approach. Many workers have noted this they did not work overtime where The End of Us: Part Ione of the reasons was shown GTA 6 the development period was longer than expected a change in culture at creative Rockstar.

Of course, this is a complex topic with many nuances that often divide opinion. However, Schofield’s implication that his team is working while sick with COVID is tenuous — though he did imply that his studio continues to weather the rigors of the pandemic. If these are the conditions, we’d argue that the delay should be considered – however, we suspect that Striking Distance Studios is also feeling the pressure. Dead Space The remake is currently scheduled for release on January 27th, one month after The Callisto Protocol.
