Atomic Heart update Cancelled? – Updated
In recent reports from game development related Telegram Page in Russian, that’s been translated on popular gaming forum ResetEra, and it indicates Atomic Heart has hit a major roadblock. According to rumored reports, ‘Atomic Heart’ development had been rebooted approx four-five months ago, and now the game has a “huge gameplay downgrade.” For example, one major downgrade maybe, the game, may now not be an open-world game but would consist of episodic runs and missions.
According to the same rumored reports, previous gameplay is sort of real, but it’s heavily linear and directed. The first released trailer of the game is mostly fake, with gameplay bits rendered on the game engine. The production company CEO doesn’t have any knowledge about game development, and due to lack of coordination, things are messed up. Everything that people like about the game, which includes art, concept, and design, is made by one person – Artyom Galeev, who has been nurturing the concept of the game for many years.
Alongside this, major layoffs have been in companies, and there are not many experienced developers with C++ and UE4 in Russia, most of the work is outsourced. The whole deal with Soviet Luna Park VR sounds like a cash-grab with people who bought the game with pre-order is left behind.
