The Order: 1886 dev says it needs to ‘make a better game next time’

The co-founder of Ready at Dawn has admitted it needs to produce a better game next time around, following the lukewarm response to its PlayStation 4-exclusive action-adventure title, The Order: 1886.

Check out Andrea Pessino‘s Tweet below.

The Order: 1886 was released in February and takes place in an alternate history London during the height of the Industrial Revolution. The game focuses on an ancient order of Knights tasked with protecting humanity against a race of half-breed demonic creatures, who up until the 19th century were fighting a losing battle against the monsters. However, in this alternate universe, the Industrial Revolution gave way to a host of technology far ahead of its time, thus helping to turn the tide of battle in favor of the human race.

Despite receiving praise for its striking visuals, which are considered among the best to date on PS4, The Order: 1886 was heavily criticised for its gameplay and storyline, with many feeling the title was far too formulaic, suffered from poor pacing and did not give the player ample opportunity to explore its environments. A sequel has not been confirmed as of yet, although Ready at Dawn has indicated it is working on a series of new projects—could a follow-up be one of them?
