Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons ble forsinket for å unngå crunch

Animal Crossing: New Horizons ble vist frem på Nintendos E3 Direct-sending, men det ble også avslørt at spillets lanseringsdato nå er den 20. mars 2020, i stedet for en lansering i år som de egentlig hadde lovet. Dette fikk Nintendos aksjeverdi til å falle over 3%, men grunnen til utsettelsen er ganske god.

I et intervju med IGN forteller Nintendo of Americas nye CEO, Doug Bouser, at de forsinket spillet for å unngå overarbeid, altså crunch-kultur.

"The crunch point is an interesting one. For us, one of our key tenets is that we bring smiles to people's faces, and we talk about that all the time. It's our vision. Or our mission, I should say. For us, that applies to our own employees. We need to make sure that our employees have good work-life balance."

"One of those examples is, we will not bring a game to market before it's ready. We just talked about one example [in Animal Crossing's delay]. It's really important that we have that balance in our world. It's actually something we're proud of."

Det ser ut til at investorene var glade for beslutningen.
