At the start of 2021 we find ourselves approaching the one-year anniversary of 'Predator: Hunting Grounds' developed by Illfonic. Predator: Hunting Grounds is unique in that it is the first multiplayer-only, live-service type game for the Predator franchise. A live-service game is one that sees regular new content updates to keep players engaged in a game long after its release, allowing the game to evolve and improve over time.
Illfonic CEO Charles Brungardt had this to say on the eve of Predator: Hunting Grounds release last year:
"Speaking of planned updates, we view the launch of Predator: Hunting Grounds as just the beginning. What that means to us, at IllFonic, is that we can continue to drop new content post launch. We do have a roadmap in place for this already. In fact, you will see the first content update — which will be a free one — go live a little over a month from now. And there will be more content updates after that. These will include many great surprises. This is part of why our community forums are so special to us. We are listening and taking your feedback to heart, whether it be found bugs or comments on the game."
While live-service games sometimes carry a negative connotation, typically when they're used to justify a lack of single-player game development, there are a number of titles that have really done well with this model. Games such as Rainbow Six Siege, Fortnite, Call of Duty: Warzone, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, Apex Legends, Dead by Daylight, and many others have kept and grown their player-bases with continual and substantive new content.

Quote from: bendinglight on Jan 23, 2021, 04:43:03 PMIs there any truth to the year-long exclusive platform being EGS and then it can be released on Steam? I have heard about this but haven't seen any actual evidence of this being true.

I have heard about this but haven't seen any actual evidence of this being true.Epic Games did not pay Sony for this but Sony is a shareholder of EG and the game runs on their Unreal Engine 4. Thus were are some royalties involved for using it.
Quote from: bendinglight on Jan 23, 2021, 06:44:59 PMOkay but is there any chance of this game coming to Steam? Or is it going to continue to be a EG exclusive? That is really what I was asking about - I have no idea if there is any validity to the "1 year time span" prior to being available on Steam statement in the article.
