Lets look at this:

1 - a studio releasing games into a crowded genre
2 - first game bombs and feels a year or more out of date when it comes out
3 - studio does not prove it can deliver innovation in a crowded genre
4 - studio closes

The end.

Frankly, I couldn't stand it if they butchered another classic Sega racer anyway. Sumo Digital proved they have the balls to do Sega racers right... hopefully they're working on Daytona as we speak.
