Its only because the game didnt become popular. if it had gotten 100,000 players, we might have the budget for such things. But when you play games on a PS4 Pro, which isnt even state of the art, and compare 4k, hdr experiences to sota, you’ll realize that casuals which u need to have a big hit game today, demand more. Every single person I’ve shown the game to says it looks outdated and that first impression can be a killer. By the way, this has nothing to do with how good a game is or not. Plenty of modern games are not good games or have issues too. But it will affect if people even want to try your game. The marketplace now is quite different than it was even 10 years ago.
