PFC didn’t receive royalties, yet. SE doesn’t reveal sales numbers. (Polish article but summary in link)

Is this normal for publishers to hide relevant information from developers in case of royalties? Or did PCF really signed a very r-worded contract?

No idea what the deal might be with some small indie developers, but this is a self-proclaimed AAA developer working under Square Enix and they painted Outriders as a success story. Seems all very fishy...

Welcome to reddit, where classical medical vocabulary is verboten.

This announcement didn't go over well.

No wonder its been a disaster post launch

I guess this also covers the question 'will there ever be dlc.' Very likely not, considering even 4.5 months after release PFC still don't know how much money they will actually make.

And them talking about going into self-publishing now doesn't paint a picture of a happy PFC-SE relationship:

Well was SE the ones who said "this game is always online" because I really think thats what causes a lot of the bugs. So maybe if self publishing means an offline game im good for that

I got hundreds of hours out of the game. Suggesting they shouldn't be paid is asinine.

Good thing, this game sucked dead ass

Royalties for what ?

ID: h9a6fgi

Based on sales numbers. And SE doesn't give those sales numbers to PFC.

They gotta make enough money to recoup the publishing costs, otherwise PCF doesn't get paid.
