Speaking at the Game Education Summit in Dallas last week, Junction Point CEO Warren Spector said he’s “so tired of making games about guys in black leather carrying guns,” and admitted he believes long games are tomorrow’s dinosaurs.

“Game costs are going to be $35-40 million, even $100 million, and the expectations are huge. You have to differentiate yourselves. One-hundred hour games are on the way out,” he said.

“How many of you have finished GTA? Two percent, probably. If we’re spending $100 million on a game, we want you to see the last level.”
