Granblue Fantasy: Relink development moved to Cygames entirely, Platinum Games is out

It's hard to say if it's a good thing or not?

Granblue Fantasy: Relink development moved to Cygames entirely, Platinum Games no longer involved

Cygames committed to delivering a game that meets fans' expectations.

Granblue Fantasy: Relink, the PlayStation 4 action RPG based on the popular Japanese mobile game, has been a co-development effort between Cygames and Platinum Games up until now, but going forward Cygames will handle the entirety of development internally, the companies announced.

The official Granblue Fantasy: Relink website, which previously featured both the Cygames and Platinum Games logos in the footer, now only features the Cygames logo. Here is a before and after comparison. The game is also no longer listed on Platinum Games’ website.

Find each company’s press release below.

Regarding Conclusion of the Development Contract for Granblue Fantasy: Relink

While we, PlatinumGames, have been working with Cygames in co-development of the upcoming console game Granblue Fantasy: Relink, we officially announce our contract on the project has come to an end. Development will still continue, but be handled solely by Cygames’ internal development team.

We would like to express our thanks to everyone who has shown interest in the project, and ask that the same support should continue for Granblue Fantasy: Relink as its production continues forward.

Suddenly, my interest dropped.

I can't tell what this means, but maybe it's a delay thing. Maybe Cygames was pulling a Microsoft and demanding more with the same time. Who knows. What i know, is that platinum makes good games aside from cartoon tie ins.
My interest on this game came from platinum, not cygames or granblue.

Well, i guess i am fond of the FFT style art. But the game looks nothing like it.

Of course, it is a good thing, since video gaming in Japan is a really major industry, and there are many developers currently making games, according to gamers' wishes.

I think the issue here is that it’s showing a lack of an ‘authorial hand’. In other words, the direction of the game seems to be contingent on whoever is willing to pick up the development. Or at least, that’s the concern here. And if that is the case, the game just becomes a product shoved together to be a return on the investment.
