Thank you for that, but seriously I liked Hawkins. Like they couldn't paid to have hawkins labs forever like the Demodoggo?
YES. Cant wait til RPD is gone too !!
We've lost our lease! Every Demogo must go!
What? No more hawkins map??? Why? How? What?
I am so confused... why is this happening? Has a chapter been pulled like this before?
The link does not work for me either.
How sad, i didn't see it coming... Just yesterday i was thinking of buying Nancy.
Never happened before that. I don't like the fact that we are losing map.
I mean, I'm happy that Hawkins is gone (but at the same time I might miss it), but... why...?
That's so weird to me that you can put all this work into characters and abilities and maps and just have it all go away cause... whatever.
I'd think if you bought the license, you would buy it so that all the work you did wouldn't just one day go POOF if the maker decided not to renew the license. Maybe that's just not realistic but it's baffling to me you can just have stuff yanked out of your game like this...
Why is this happening all of a sudden? First time theyve lost a licence like this before I believe
Same! Maps are my absolute fav thing in this game and I love the lab!!!
I usually don't freak out over games but #########??????
Was their an issue with the license?
I honestly have no words for this, like I am really surprised this has actually happened,
No. Like what the ######### is going on
Dose this mean my over 400 Hawkins map offerings across all characters will be refunded? Hope so but most likely wont.
1. Why the chapter is leaving
2. Why THE MAP IS GOING TO BE DISABLED?!?!?!
I need coffee... I woke up expecting more teases... now one of my fav maps is going forever? I feel like I'm in a bad dream ;_;
So that’s it, nobody is going to be able to purchase DemoDog anymore. One of the best Chapters just taken away like that
Surely they can't just delete Demogorgon and his perks for future players, right? Which makes me think that we might get a reskin? A Killer with the same powers as Demogorgon, but with different looks/style?
Wait, what? So moving forward, there will be mechanically unique content that is just no longer accessible to new players? That seems really screwed up IMO.
it might be that the licenseholders didn't agree to renew the license for whatever reason.
Wow... I mean i’m happy the Hawkins map will be gone but that’s sad they couldn’t renew the license.
No. The closest thing that’s happened is the Nightmare on Elm Street content not being available on Switch for a while. They couldn’t play against Freddy or on any of the Badham maps, I think.
I’m guessing they have agreements with the license holders that last for X years and then get re-negotiated. Netflix probably wanted different terms for the rights to keep using the Stranger Things IP and they couldn’t come to an agreement, so we have this. Pretty interesting.
Well, this is really, really, really stupid.
1) Licencing expired and one of the two parties didn't want to, or couldn't, renew it.
2) Because it's Stranger Things content and the only content that will remain in-game is that already owned by players. As no player owns the map it will go.
They like JUST added the Jonathan Byers legendary. Wonder what exactly made the license holder pull out/not renew.
im really bummed, not only will new players not be able to purchase demo , steve , nancy, and johnathan. but they get rid of the map. i see no reason they cant leave the map in
Anyone who bought the demogorgon, it's perks and outfits get to keep them.
It will be a licensing issue for both I bet. Maybe bhvr wanted to re-license but the price went up or maybe they just planned to only license temporarily and this was inevitable.
I don't like the fact we are losing a map, especially since they don't release them for all new chapters now but there's nothing we can do about it.
buy steve nancy and demo while u can
you can keep them after they leave!!!!
Sooo less demo in the future....
