What will happen to Ninja Theory now?

This game had good reviews (from terrible reviewers), tons of publicity, and still bombed.

Will anyone take a risk and hire them again or are they pretty much done for in the industry? How long before the layoffs begin?

British tax laws guarantee they wont go under.

The media will probably issue some more shaming articles like with enslaved(stay classy), and soon they'll tell us how they're doing something big that will innovate action games and change the entire landscape, and once more it'll pass under the radar.

And the cycle will begin again.

The one thing harming that analogy is the fact that the film media has no problem telling the general public how much his films reek.

With any luck Tameem will be forced out and if there are any good developers in the company they'll be absorbed by other companies.

Really, it's "three strikes and you're out" time for NT. Heavenly Sword, Enslaved, DmC. "Yuuuuuuuuurr out!"

Terrible comparison indeed

Tameem has become a pariah, and a fairly accurate representation of everything currently wrong with the video games industry. While it's doubtful that NT will go under, it's equally doubtful that they will ever work on another big game again. Why Capcom hired them to begin with after the sales of Heavenly Sword and Enslaved still mystifies me to this day.

At least Uwe Boll doesn't claim his work can stand up to the best of film and theatre, or the best of whatever.
