Flop or not, Babylon’s Fall will receive content with seasons 2 and 3, and even more. PlatinumGames wanted to reassure while the software rows to round up players.
Babylon’s Fall was released on March 3 but unfortunately for Square Enix, the action RPG did not move the crowds. It’s actually the opposite. However, like the failure of Marvel’s Avengers, the new franchise from the creators of Bayonetta 3 will not give up.
Whatever happens, PlatinumGames and Square Enix are promising a follow-up to Babylon’s Fall. Both parties agree that the “title is not in danger”.
No, there are no plans to scale back the development of Babylon’s Fall. Season 2 content is nearly complete, and we’ve started work on Season 3 and beyond.. We will continue to deliver content and make improvements based on player feedback, striving to retain current players and attract new ones. We want to thank all the Sentinels who are already having a blast in the world of Babylon’s Fall, and we look forward to welcoming more in the future.
At least Square Enix and PlatinumGames aren’t letting go of the players who believed in the project.
Babylon’s Fall: a relatively cold welcome
If PlatinumGames wants to reassure on the future of Babylon’s Fall, it’s because the co-op game is not in its best shape. At launch, the title struggled to reach 1,000 active players on Steam, and it only went down. The software is now struggling to exceed 500 players. Worrying but predictable attendance? Prior to release, previews didn’t rave reviews, and after reviews were released, the game ended up with a Metacritic press rating of 39/100 on PC and 42/100 on PS5. A notation in the red.
In addition to the defects noted, the title was caught between Horizon Forbidden West, Elden Ring, or Sifu. Games that, from the start, were more anticipated and acclaimed by critics and players.
