I thought bioshock sold well? So why are they shutting down? =(


I think they spent too much on the game so while it did sell well it didn't sell well enough.

Because video game budgets are bloated as all hell.

How many studios did Microsoft destroy? I can think of Rare right off the top of my head. Anymore? HMM? hmmm?

Oh look:

Defunct
Artoon – Blinx series, Blue Dragon
Beep Industries – Voodoo Vince
Bizarre Creations – Project Gotham Racing series
Dark Energy Digital – Hydrophobia
Digital Anvil – Brute Force, Freelancer
DreamWorks Interactive – The Neverhood Chronicles
feelplus – Lost Odyssey
Fuel Industries – Tinker
Game Republic – Every Party
Hudson Soft– Fuzion Frenzy 2
Indie Built –Amped series
Realtime Worlds – Crackdown
Southend Interactive – Lode Runner 2009, ilomilo
Turbine – Asheron's Call
.


Funny how those companies didn't have franchises to begin with, compared to Factor 5 for example. I forgot what Team Bondi did.

I think people need to stop blaming HD, and pretty graphics for these studios going out of business.
Quantic Dream made probably the best looking games on the PS3, and they were profitable. If a studio doesn't know how to manage resources it's their own fault.

Actually the graphics were outdated and Bioshock One still looks and plays better than Infinite.
Too many promises by Kevin and even some deleted missions from the final game which were presence on the trailer.

I love Bioshock but the last one wasn't that amazing, it was good but no way pan AAA title as reviewers claimed.
In the entire games industry, Nintendo has done the best job of managing their franchises in the long term. EGM

It's hilarious, especially after someone told me that the reason why the default cover for Infinite is just to attract a COD gamer.

He's nothing more than a hypocrite in my eyes and a douche for trying to make a game be way too overhyped.
