Todd knew full well that it be didn't stack the audience with flunkies, he'd get heckled off the stage after his blatant fucking lies of last year.

I think that the real problem with Prey, Dishonored 2 and Deus Ex : MD is that the games failed to generate excitement. It's mostly the way they were marketed. There was a lot of it, but it was rather bland and boring. I also found that the games themselves were a bit generic or too similar to the previous entries who already saturated us. Dishonored 2 and Deus Ex were definitely marketed as more of the same and I didn't feel that Prey really had a unique identity. I know Prey is probably a good game, and it's a type of game I usually love, but I have zero excitement for it.

e that this game formula doesn't sell well to the masses.
Dishonored 2 is objectively a worse game than Dishonored 1 though (I own and played both), same for Deus EX Mankind Divided, which was objectively a worse game than Deus EX Human Revolution (I own and played both)
It's imo fair that both games sold worse than their predecessors. If they hadn't that would have sent a far worse message.
