What the hell is wrong with Square these days, seriously? The game sells tons, yet they declare it a failure? The dumbass higher-ups making these idiotic decisions are the ones who should be getting laid off, not these poor developers.

Ever think of reading the article before commenting? It says the people working on the sequel are not being laid off. Some of the people who are working on a new IP are getting laid off.

That's not what I was talking about. I was talking about Square-Enix and any of the devs who get published by them, just like how they also claimed Hitman: Absolution was a failure even though it also sold really well.

Nowhere in my comment did I specifically mention Tomb Raider.

How much you want to bet Square Enix canceled the project?

Good job guys. Keep supporting GameStop and their used game policies so more good studios can close down. Pretty soon all we'll be playing is these stupid indie games that resemble Nintendo entertainment system graphics. Or micro-transactions galore. Keep it up.

or you know companies can stop over spending get proper management and not rip off/try to there loyal consumers

something is very wrong when a game can sell 4 million in a month and barely make money in a 70 billion $ industry.

gamestop is not the biggest issue.
