The Order: 1886's Developers Reflect On Failings And Potential Future For The Series

On this week's full episode of The Game Informer Show podcast, Ben Hanson spoke with Ready at Dawn co-founders Ru Weerasuriya and Andrea Pessino about the new direction for the studio behind Daxter, the God of War games on PSP, and PlayStation 4's The Order: 1886. We wanted to post the interview separately to let more people hear the duo's insightful thoughts on the modern state of game development. Three years ago we posted this full look at the history of the studio, so you can think of this interview as a continuation of that discussion. As discussed in our review, The Order: 1886 ended up having some real highs and lows, so it makes for an interesting discussion with Weerasuriya and Pessino about what the final days of development and dealing with the mixed reaction was like for the team.

Check out the interview below to learn more about what it takes to run a large, independent studio after releasing a game like The Order: 1886.
