Well, mostly such series are developed to popularize the game. The series ran its full course and did quite a well job. However, there have also been some negative reviews. Some fans remarked that the writing wasn’t up to the mark. Also, the critics shared these comments. Consequently, the revenues were quite low despite the huge gaming fan base. Also, there’s no source material available as of now. These negative responses are holding back the creators from coming back.
