Eye-popping graphics and an intriguing setting in Victorian London weren’t enough to cushion the blow of negative reviews directed at The Order: 1886 upon launch, but that mixed reaction has only fuelled Ready at Dawn’s enthusiasm to create “a better game” next time around.
Responding to a fan via Twitter, Andrea Pessino, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at the studio, was confident in the team’s ability to rise to the challenge.
@Vitoiuvara I don’t think it would have made much of a difference… We just have to have to make a better game next time, and we will.

Alas, Ready at Dawn’s PS4 debut proved to a textbook example of style over substance. The question now is whether the studio will stick with the PlayStation exclusive IP to carve out a sequel, or create something new entirely.
Would you like to see a continuation of The Order: 1886?
