The crowded November schedule is healthy for the industry says Bethesda
Bethesda's Pete Hines believes that, despite the congestion, a busy November is good for the industry.
November is usually a fairly busy month for big releases but this year is especially packed with top titles. This year the congestion includes The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim alongside the usual Call of Duty release, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Need for Speed: The Run and Saints Row: The Third.
Hines explained: "It's probably healthy for the industry because the industry gets a lot of attention when there's all these things happening. Just like the movie industry gets a lot of buzz when there's a bunch of really big things at the movies and everyone's talking about them all."
He added: "It's probably not healthy for everyone who has one of those titles, because as you rightly pointed out usually someone gets the short end of the stick. Someone ends up falling short and not doing quite what they expected to do."
Bethesda has The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on November the 11th and they also have Rage out on October the 4th. Both are out on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
