Is there a news article on this? First time hearing this.


List of developers involved in fraud and embezzlement:

Level 5

Gearbox

Level 5 stole money from Microsoft that was destined for the development of True Fantasy Online, instead of using the money for the funding of games on Sony console and were barely working on True Fantasy Online, Microsoft iniated an investigation unto this matter and uncovered the facts, resulting in the cancelation of the project and of course the severing ties with these fraudsters.

Gearbox stole money from Sega that was destined for the development of Aliens: Colonial Marines, instead of using the money for the development of the game they used the money to fund Borderlands 2 and instead outsourced the development of Aliens: Colonial Marines to some other studio, resulting in a long development time and very bad final product.


Where is the source to this claim against Level 5? I have searched and never came up with a single article remotely hinting at this claim you have.


An article? Seriously? Your dreaming. This sort of things are not revealed to the public and they certainly dont make articles out of it, did Sega or Gearbox ever release an article about what really went on? NO, the only reason we know of this is because an employe revealed the truth on reddit.


Then give a link even remotely speaking about this. That story between Sega and Gearbox went viral very, very quickly. Nothing of the sort happened between Level 5 and Microsoft.

Until you can give a link showing some proof then you are just simply blowing smoke out of your ass.

Microsoft would not reveal the truth,

"Dear Un-satisfied customer,
We are sorry to hear that you were looking forward to "True Fantasy Online", but unfortounatly we are unable to provide reasons with our disaproval at this time. We look forward to having you as a customer in the near future and would like to inform you there are many other Role-Playing games on thier way made by your favorite company, Microsoft.
Thank you for your concern,
Microsoft Comments & Suggestions"

True Fantasy Online is a game from 10 years ago, no employees of Level 5 came on to reddit saying "Yes we are thieves, we commited money fraud", rather the backstory are online for you to find if you search well enough, but this was 2004 and Aliens was from not long ago.

When Microsoft initated the investigation, they not only found out that Level 5 was using their money destined for the development of True Fantasy Online to fund their other games on Sony console, but also that after all this time True Fantasy Online development progress was not even at 50 percent.

Yakuza 6 xbox one exclusive.


Haha thats a good one.


Seriously, it would help sell xboxs in Japan. They love Yakuza over there. If MS acquired Yakuza with MS stocks from Sega they could started selling some xboxs in Japan. Or maybe they can try throwing money around to get something like Persona 100% xbox exclusive. They really just need 1 massive Japanese game as an exclusive to successfully enter the Japan market. Maybe they can steal Final Fantasy away from Sony.........FF15 will now be xbox one exclusive as the PS4 version has been scrapped. MS needs something like this. Otherwise, their brand isn't going to change much in Japan.

Again you continue on with your made up garbage.
True Fantasy was actually at a "playable" status and near completion when TGS 2003 came. The game then got a quiet delay from it's fall 2003 release. E3 2004 came and the game wasn't there. Then came the cancellation on June 2nd.

"Often cited as one of the most disappointing project cancellations of recent years, True Fantasy Live Online was highly anticipated almost right from the moment it was announced in 2002, and was touted as one of the premier titles for the Xbox and its Xbox Live online service in Japan. Yet despite being "fully playable" and near completion according to Microsoft around the time of its cancellation, the title's development was littered with complications from the very beginning. One such problem was Level-5's inexperience with online network coding and their inability to properly implement voice chat compatibility into the game. It was a feature never before implemented on such a large scale in an MMORPG; however, Microsoft was very adamant on its inclusion, as it was a key feature to their Xbox Live service.

Relations between the two companies soon began to spiral out of control as Level-5 struggled to meet the demands required by Microsoft, who in turn grew frustrated at the lack of progress being made on the game. After an extremely short and rather underwhelming showing at the Tokyo Game Show in 2003, True Fantasy Live Online was quietly delayed from its initial Fall 2003 release into 2004. From then, little was seen or heard about from the title, and after a surprising absence during the year's E3 convention, it was officially cancelled by Microsoft on June 2.

In the months following, Level-5 President and CEO Akihiro Hino stated in a Japanese interview that the poor relations between his company and Microsoft, partially due to the latter's inexperience in dealing with Japanese developers, was one of the major reasons behind True Fantasy Live Online's cancellation. He also heavily implied that the two companies did not part amicably.

In an interview in 2008, the CEO Akihiro Hino stated he still has many ideas for True Fantasy Live Online, and would personally like to work on the game. Whether or not the game does come back into development has yet to be seen.

In a July 2008 interview with Edge, Shane Kim, former general manager of Microsoft Game Studios spoke in regard to failed Microsoft MMORPG projects (including Marvel Universe Online, and True Fantasy Live Online). While acknowledging that the cancellations were the right thing to do at the time, Shane Kim also felt that such games could be successful on the Xbox 360 platform."
