They don't call it "Black Friday" for nothing. The holiday shopping season is an important point during any year for a business's ledgers. However, let's face it, the holiday release window for video games, though important, ultimately draws attention to the heavyweights: Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, [insert big name franchise here]. Games coming from smaller developers, publishing houses, or both don't get half the shine that the aforementioned titles do. What this has me asking, then, is why more smaller developers aren't flocking to the summer months to release their games.
