I look forward to teh new franchises they create.. I have alot of respect for these guy and hope they are allowed free reign by EA to make great games that we, the gamers want. Here is to hoping for a great gaming future
As much as possible, I would like to have a positive outlook on this. But when we talk about EA, well, hopefully they won't ruin the game by introducing their own ways of doing things (remember Red Alert 3).
Considering these guys made all the "Good" cod games as well as the medal of honor games im pretty pumped for this. I think this will be good as long as EA lets them have a great deal of control over what they do. EA will see the sales potential and hopefully good games come out.
With all the former developers from IW leaving Activisions iron grip I wonder how the future of the COD franchise is going to play out. After all it wasn't even a week after MW2 was released that they were talking about releasing 3 more COD branded games within the next year in a half. Talk about milking a franchise to death.
A split is definitely in order if you ask most COD fans after the BS they pulled blowing MW fans off prior to MW2's release. I haven't seen a cocky, arrogant group of people who stuck it to the fans like that in a long while.
I have, its called Blizzard Entertainment. Only a brief look at whats happening with Starcraft 3 is evidence enough that the entire industry, at least on the publisher side, has gone off the pier. Developers need to reach down deep and grab hold of their stones and start getting WRITTEN contracts limiting publisher influence on their products.
