So it begins...

We can only hope the same happens to IW that happened to Rare. It will serve Activision right.

i was thinking the same ting but if its one thing i learned is that even if all key people leave IW (which will most likely happen) and they replace the studio with new devs

whatever game they make will still be popular just because of the developers name
same thing happened to rare

Nothing happened to Rare, they're still great.

Mackey McCandlish resigned too so we're up to a total of 6 people that left.

Now the question is which one is the bigger evil: Activision or EA. It just HAD to be these two eh?

What goes around comes around, They were getting way too greedy.

Remember when the Medal of Honor developers left EA and went over to Activision to form Infinity Ward? Together Acti and IW made the biggest fsp ever in the history of fps; Call of Duty, while the Medal of Honor series died a slow death with EA, partly due to the fact that the series lost its original creators and developers to Acti.

Fast forward a few years and now the same developers that left EA to form IW at Acti are going back to EA to form a new studio that specializes in fsp. Now the Call of Duty series will die a slow death as Acti tries to continue the series without the original developers and creators.

History have shown us that once the original developers leave things turn to [email protected]

they could have just form an independent studio and make great games! publishers will drool all over them if they are GOLDEN! with that, they can have the highest bidder publish their games! just like QD is doing!

this shows that they simply can't do a thing without a huge publisher backing them aren't they? afterall, they've been clinging behind Acti with their generic shooters! none of this is actually good for gamers! in the end of the day, we gamers will just get another slew of generic shooters from these guys in the wake of trying to beat CoD! this happened before with MoH where we got CoD! now, god knows what else we'll be getting!

Someone strolled through with their multiple accounts.

Respawn Entertainment IS an independent studio. EA funded them and will publish their games but Respawn will keep control over their IPs, thing that wouldn't been possible with Activision since they own (part of) IW and their IPs.

Activision, you had this coming. Here's to hoping your final golden days are at an end, though they probably won't unless they lose the modern warfare name in the lawsuit. And I hope they do lose it.

Rest In Piss Activision

For the good of the industry I really hope Respawn comes out on top and makes some amazing games.
