This shift In direction to a live service title has caused many fans of the studio to worry for Bend’s future. Both because many single-player game studios that have been forced into creating live services that degrade the quality of their games and because recent Sony layoffs have been targeted at studios who develop live service titles for them.

One can only hope that Bend Studio doesn’t fall victim to this recent trend in the AAA gaming industry. For now, though we can only wait in anticipation as the game may only be early in development.
