Oddworld: Soulstorm PS Plus Deal Was Devastating, Says Lorne Lanning

As you might remember, Oddworld: Soulstorm was the major PS Plus free game for April 2021 when it launched about a year ago (it was also an Epic Games Store exclusive on PC). In a new podcast interview with the YouTube channel Xbox Expansion Pass, though, Oddworld Inhabitants president and co-founder Lorne Lanning explained that the PS Plus deal for Oddworld: Soulstorm ended up being devastating for the studio, albeit through no fault of Sony.
