Live service mode, which is a game mode used by many game manufacturers in recent years, is a way of operation that attracts players to return to the game and keep the heat by continuously issuing DLC for a long time after the game body is released, or adding new items and new scenarios.
According to analyst mauronl, Warner Brothers recruitment page shows that the publisher currently has a number of game works designed to emphasize the live service model.
Warner is developing games such as LEGO Star Wars: Skywalker legend, blood revenge, Gotham Knight and suicide squad: kill justice alliance. In addition, Hogwarts’ inheritance has been extended to 2022.
Overall, live service is still popular, and many vendors use it to keep the game hot. But there are also some “rollover” ones, such as BioWare’s Hymn, which was launched at the beginning of the light speed and was still in trouble after the launch of the hymn 2.0 program. And so is crystal dynamic’s manway avenger, which has lost millions of dollars for se because of its poor gameplay.
However, according to the foreign media IGN, the development team of Gotham Knight said that “Gotham Knight” will not be planned as a live service mode, because “Gotham Knight” will be a self-contained story rather than a developing narrative.
