Glen Schofield , CEO of Striking Distence Studios and director of The Callisto Protocol , has published a tweet in relation to a previous publication on the work schedules in the development of the game. In response to the first, much of the community issued criticism against Schofield, which backed down with a second tweet.
The initial publication, now eliminated, the director talked about the reasons why he had not been promoting the Callisto Protocol too much even though it is not so much for its launch. I only talk about the game during an event, we could read on the Tweet. «We work 6-7 days a week, nobody forces us. Exhaustion, tiredness, Covid but we are working. Bugs, Glitches, performance. One last pass by the audio. 12-15 hours. This is a game. Hard work. Lunch, dinner working. You do it because you like it ».
Of course, the community’s response, represented by Jason Schreier in the tweet above, came in relation to the fact that, although it is understood that no one is explicitly obliged to perform so many hours, the culture of the Crunch represents reduced bonuses and some some limited opportunities for those who do not reach the excessive work rate of those who work more than 12 hours a day.
On these lines you have the tweet that came later with the intention of clarifying the situation, where Schofield began by saying that anyone who knows me knows how passionate I am for the people I work with. Next, after recognizing that it was a mistake to express it as he did, what they value in the development team is passion and creativity, not long hours. I’m sorry that the team has given that impression, he concluded.
Although it seems that in general there are hopes in the game, the last thing we saw about him fell to us during the Opening Night Live of the Gamescom, with a trailer not too convincing. However, the context of the team, with a Schofield that was creator and producer of Dead Space, and some of the videos they taught previously still keep optimistic to those who want a little space terror.
The Callisto Protocol will be released on December 2, 2022 in Xbox One , Xbox Series X Y S , PS4 , PS5 and and PC **.
