The exact duration of the intro cinematic is:
2 minutes 21 seconds
The exact duration for the outro cinematic is LESS than a minute:
Listen… i know it takes a lot of time and effort to make just one cinematic, but like come on guys… this is BLIZZARD ENTERTAINMENT we are talking about! they have many many talented artists and 3d modelers, they can do anything!
Idk how you feel but these cinematics are wayyy too short to be big and impactful on the story telling.
Both cinematics here combined are 3 minutes and 8 seconds long in this mission.
Just so you know, Storm Rising’s cutscenses were longer than this, with about 4 minutes and 34 seconds ( both intro and outro)
The cinematics must be longer than this if you want to attract people’s attention… come on blizz… you’re better than that, I know you can do better than that!
Some people might say: ‘well, how long do you want the cinematics to be?’
To that I have to say ATLEAST 5 minutes ( Intro and Outro combined)
Like atleast 2 minutes 30 secs Intro
And 2 minutes 30 secs Outro.
The Story Experience needs long cinematics for it to be big and awesome.
If the cinematics aren’t that long, I’m sorry but like this isn’t a true story mode.
Shooting robots every single mission with a few cinematics that don’t even last for a minute doesn’t seem like a lot of fun if you ask me.
Besides, the only reason you’d be buying this game is for the PvE content, for a ‘Story Experience’.
You will be getting all the new heroes and maps and cosmetics coming with the game, so you won’t have to buy OW2.
If you want people to buy this game, the Story Modes NEEDS to be mind blowing, it needs a lot of cinematics, interactions between the heroes, etc etc.
I might be prejudging them, maybe eternally they have cinematics that are 5 or 6 minutes long, if that’s the case I am pretty happy.
So yeah, blizz, please,MORE cinematics thank you
Edit: I would like to thank Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan for replying to my post!! sorry if my post was a bit harsh Jeff ;(
