Your comparison likens multi billion dollar companies to a pretty small game developer. Grand theft auto five likely out sold every version of farming simulator combined. Couple that with some of the different ways they have to design there map to work properly then it almost turns the question the other way back to the bigger companies, how is this all we got with the resources you have available?FarmBoss wrote: ↑Wed Sep 16, 2020 2:52 pm
Don't worry, I'm not dissing Giants, I'm sure they're doing the best they can with the knowledge and experience they have. But, given more knowledge and experience, we can see that consoles can keep up with most PCs (minus the high-end computers that people choose to build for themselves)
GTA V cost around 225 million to make. RDR 2 is estimated to have cost about double that. The team working on Arthur's beard growth is likely to have been bigger than the entire Giants development staff.
It is not likely. It's very definite. GTA V sold 16 million copies in the first 5 days after release. Farming Simulator 19 has sold over one million copies 10 days after launch. That's not even accounting for the cash cow that GTA online has become. You simply cannot compare the scales we are talking about here. FS 17 sold somewhere in the region of over 2 million in total. Sales were much less for previous versions.
