Redfall is Arkane's Worst Game Ever

It's also the worst "AAA" developed title in recent memory.

It was a struggle to finish Redfall. It was an absolute struggle thanks to performance issues, technical deficiencies, crashes, broken A.I., and uninspired quest design. It was the antithesis of fun and I pushed myself to complete the game out of pure spite.

Second, the studio wants to "strategically avoid releasing during a busy week when multiple other games are hitting the market."

    Amnesia: The Bunker was already delayed once from March until...
