Believe it or not, the current Game Development Studio has given employees a day off to play Elden Ring, the blockbuster just released today.
Employees at game development studios have just received a notification that they will be taking a day off from home and playing Elden Ring in time for the game’s release. Perhaps these are the game studios that are most willing to play, know how to grasp trends to make employees more excited to work.
For gamers who are crazy fans of a certain series of games, it is a great joy to see their favorite game launch. For years, players have been eagerly watching the release dates of titles to look forward to it coming out and experiencing. This year, the name Elden Ring is constantly being named on the list and this is probably the most anticipated game in the world at the moment.
Elden Ring has received a lot of praise from early reviewers, and the gaming community, with many gamers waiting in line late at night to download the pre-loaded version of the game to look forward to entering. early game. While some players will be staring at the clock waiting for the end of the workday to run home and fire up the game in preparation for battle, some lucky game developers will get the day off just to play. Elden Ring. It sounds hard to believe, but to do that, it is enough to see that Miyazaki’s Souls-Like-style game has a very strong appeal to anyone.
The release of Eden Ring was a monumental event, and with the developer being based in Japan, the game was heavily advertised around the world. That’s why a Japanese game development company announced February 25, which is also the release date of Elden Ring, will be officially ‘Elden Holiday’. As Pocket Pair management put it, they “thought their employees couldn’t focus on their work” because of the big draw on the day Elden Ring was released. Instead of forcing their employees to struggle to do so, they chose to give them Fridays off, and even allow employees to stay home next Monday if they want to finish playing the game.
This is a move that is certainly popular with Pocket Pair employees, and is arguably smart for other game recruiters to follow. In the past, gamers have taken days off just to play Skyrim, which can leave companies struggling to keep up. In that sense, especially in the game development industry it makes more sense to just give your employees a day off. Players can stay at home and play their favorite games, and anyone who doesn’t play video games in their free time can enjoy a little extra vacation to clear their minds.
Given the Elden Ring’s eagerness at its peak, perhaps a lot of FromSoftware fans wish their bosses were as generous. There was also a similar case last year when VR developer Mark-on decided to give his employees a day off to play Monster Hunter Rise when the game was released. It’s great to see more game developers admitting their favorite blockbuster games are coming. Because they cannot force their employees to go to work these days, the decision to give leave is the right one. Elden Ring is out today, February 25th on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
