The Order 1886, one of the most anticipated games of 2015, launches later this month, but it is already being bombarded with scrutiny.

There have been videos on Youtube showing the game completed in less than 6 hours. Developed by Ready at Dawn, the company's CEO Ru Weerasuriya had little to say on the subject.

"At the end of the day, we're not going to comment on it," Weesrasuriya told Eurogamer. "We can't stop people from writing the things they do. And we're not going to jump at every single mistake that is made out there.

Every time somebody has the wrong impression of something we made, or somebody writes the wrong thing about what we did, it would be a full-time job to be like, oh no, that's not right. We make games.

We do what we do for the players. And, ultimately, that's where I want to leave it."

"Game length is important," he continued. "Every game has to take its own time to tell its story. Some games can be short.

Some games can be long.

I still remember the first time I picked up Modern Warfare, I finished the campaign in about three-and-a-half or four hours. And it was fun because they made that campaign work for that because they had something else."

There are other third person shooters, however, that have turned out to short. The first Gears of War, according to Game Lengths, has a minimum duration of 7 hours and fifteen minutes, which isn't much longer than The Order.
