I think with Activision they have a great opportunity for restructuring and expanding studios and teams.
They have a large pool of talent and workforce and studios that have been stuck on CoD for a long time now. If they can detach a lot of those teams from Cod and put them back on their own games/IP, whether teams within studios or even rebrand & repurpose of studios, that’d as close to building new studios as possible.
Cool. Thanks. And that does make sense, when you acquire instead of start from scratch, you get things like team cohesion included with your purchase. As well as in-progress work.
On the flip side though, you’ve got potential for getting various problems included with your purchase. Exhibit A currently being Kotick and Activision.
Yeah, I think a lot of what has been said by Xbox pre-Activison can probably be reconsidered now. It would make sense to alter your planning and your vision, when you’ve suddenly added 10,000 people to your team.
Can’t wait to experience this new universe they are creating as a big Mass Effect fan, and also happy to see it’s multiplatform but the pessimist in me expects some sort of moneyhat from Sony, especially because they are lacking in AAA WRPGs, hope not though.
