Usually metacritic adds the score as it adds the review, so having 20+ reviews that haven't added their score to the metarating is something I haven't seen before.

It makes me wonder if Sony paid them to deliberately wait on declaring/adding up the scores so that the game would be stuck in unscored (minimum 4 reviews) rather than posting a metacritic rating. Otherwise what's the hold up?
When the game was released on PS4, the user scores were brigaded by 4channers who were morally offended that the game didn't have PvP. I wonder if that has something to do with it?
