“I think it’s a great trip. He is emotional, he has many qualities. Is the game perfect? Like any game, no, I don’t think it’s perfect. It can always be better,” Dugas assured Eurogamer. “But is it a great trip? And is there something this year or last year that you played that is different from everything else? And is it worth spending your time on it? Honestly, I think it is, from a game standpoint.” He also stated that “there were no regrets. We did everything we could, but that is the reality of the market…”
“And let’s not forget it’s a new IP. Although we say the Guardians of the Galaxy are known, it remains a new IP in the video game market. It may be that many people do not even know that the game is already available, or are not sure exactly what it is.
“We always want to sell trillions, but it’s not always necessarily as easy as that,” says Dugas. As for his recent arrival on Xbox Game Pass For which Microsoft would have paid 10 million dollars, DeMarle added that “for me, it’s about creating the game. What I love right now is that people, especially with Games Pass, are playing it and sharing the experience. We make games to touch people, we make games to hit the audience. And it’s great that she’s finding the audience for her, and it’s great that she’s still moving forward.”
