Why were the Lost Judgment and Judgment PC releases blocked?
Basically, the talent agency has a strict policy regarding social media and publication of its clients on PC. It bans most of their talent from using social media at all, and even photos taken at a press conference can’t be published online. Because of Johnny’s being against Judgment PC releases of any kind, Sega apparently canceled plans of a third game in the series due to losses being so severe without a Judgment PC release. Now that there are Judgment PC releases over a year later, does that mean we’ll receive a third title in the series? Hopefully.
Thankfully, PC gaming isn’t where it once was
As a PC gamer who lived through the dark ages of 2006-2014, it’s really nice to see the gradual 180. Back then, every major publisher hated us for existing, and now we’re a huge part of their portfolios. Compelling indie games can sell over a million copies in their first week of release (albeit aided by console releases), and niche titles that would’ve been consigned to the dustbin of gaming history can break out and become massive successes.
Dark Souls, for instance, was popular but not a mega success when it was initially launched. After its release on PC and subsequent sequels, we now have Elden Ring, which has sold tens of millions of copies (again, aided by console versions as well). There are plenty of other examples of games coming to PC and selling super well, too, so let’s hope Judgment follows suit.
If you’re interested in checking out the Judgment PC releases, Judgment and Lost Judgment are now available on Steam. The jury’s out on whether they’re good ports, but Sega has had a fairly decent track record so they should be good. They do have Denuvo DRM, which apparently isn’t great, so we’ll have to see.
