Really, it's for the good of the gaming market. This company has consistently failed to produce quality games, and the very few times they find something original or playable, they decide to cancel it and shut down the developer. Blur didn't have much of a chance. Prototype seems like it has now ended. GH was decent until they watered that down to nothing. I heard rumors they passed on Brutal and Ghostbusters, both games which turned out rather well. Is Activision resistant to innovation, originality, or even retaining respect?
Knowing how poorly this company treats devs I buy their games used. They'll shut them down regardless so my money goes to the game store instead. I discourage anyone I can from buying games from this publisher and look down on anyone lacking the intelligence to avoid them. There are zero good games coming from this place, the management has absolutely no brains or clues, and as a long time gamer I'm tired of seeing the market get dragged backwards by so many utterly stupid decisions. I know I'm not the only one and the crowd is growing. Gamers have to wise up sometime. You can only copy and paste a game so many times before it sinks like a rock. I eagerly wait for that day when the blockhead in charge ends up broke.
Agreed it just seems like they are running their business into the ground with all the stupid decisions being made. prototype and a real chance and would have made some serious coin if they had made a multiplayer version and frankly the call of duty franchise can't go anywhere now without being run into the ground, they've done past war, current war, and now future war. What's next? fantasy war where they shoot bunnies out of clouds? CoD was their last good game and it's time to hand the reins over to a new owner.
