Last weeks all players of Order & Chaos Online are asking “When will iOS update be released?”. From Gameloft we can’t hear anything, but we have some of our sources and they told us that the game may not be released before April 15.
We were just wondering why they haven’t released the game before the hollidays? A lot of people would love to play this game in the hollidays and weekend. Also, probably everyone, and us too, is asking why then Gameloft has announced that that update will come in next days? Our source think that is because two reason.
First, and main, reason is that Gameloft constantly has technical issues. When their developers fix one, short after that another is coming. We commend Gameloft for their desire that game is without bugs, but hey Gameloft guy’s, we got used to them. Give us a game to enjoy in it, so we will forgive the occasional bugs. Or you shouldn’t announce Order & Chaos Online new update! Next time you be sure that the new update is working, we don’t ask for “marketing traps” months before the real release date.
Second reason, according to our insider, is that they made the wrong decision. No one in the game industry won’t release two games or a new game and big update in the same dates. Simply, this is not the right decision in any business. Yes, we know that the Order & Chaos Duels is very similar to the main game, and that many people do not see it as a separate game, but the fact is that it is. Releasing two reasonably similar niche games shortly after each other is very bad for their sales. That is marketing law!!
What is the solution? We see three possibilities. We advise Gameloft that they change something in their developer or marketing departments, because it is obvious that both (or maybe just one) department don’t do their jobs on high level. The game has a lot of bugs – sorry developers, but that is fact. The marketing department has made the decision to announce a BIG game update without rock stable promise from developers – sorry guys but marketing doesn’t work that way!
Third solution is that Gameloft invest more money in their technique, but also in their employees.
We don’t know who is guilty and we don’t wish to accuse anyone, but Gameloft receives punches with everyday that Order & Chaos Online iOS update is postponed.
If they improved significantly after the release date, we would forgive them all.
