EA, the rotted sewage of the gaming world, has no end to the bullshit it will pull. They make a statement claiming they will encourage their workers to make new IP’s and give these a chance against the many big names they’ve gotten by buying companies and firing the workers, while having the highest worker turnaround in the industry.
Yup, I’m sure the workers will jump at the chance to give EA a game they worked on by themselves, just to be fired and watch their work get milked and bastardized like all the rest.
Now they’re after Take2 for the GTA franchise and Ubisoft for Assassin’s Creed, and likely the Heroes and Rayman franchises. Fortunately T2 declined and Ubi laughed them out the door, but with EA owning 19% of Ubi’s shares and rising, how much longer can they last?
When will EA learn that games are best left to develop with the original developers?
