A note from Laura Miele, President of EA Entertainment and Technology

Laura Miele writes:

"[Re: Respawn] ... we have decided to pivot away from early development on a Star Wars FPS Action game to focus our efforts on new projects based on our owned brands while providing support for existing games."

"[Re: Battlefield Studios] ... we immediately appointed leadership at Criterion to oversee our single-player work. As part of this change, we'll be winding down Ridgeline as a standalone studio in Seattle, with some team members joining Ripple Effect. They'll continue to work with teams across DICE, Ripple, and Criterion as they build the next Battlefield experience."

"[Re Mobile] ... we have brought together the mobile and HD franchise teams under singular leadership across EA SPORTS FC, Madden NFL, and The Sims. The next step is setting up our standalone mobile portfolio for growth. Over the past few weeks, we have announced we are sunsetting Kim Kardashian Hollywood, Lord of the Rings, Tap Sports Baseball, and F1 Mobile."

If true, then VERY smart move by EA. No one wanted this game. No one at all. I mean, a possibly First Person Titanfall like game starting the Mandalorian??? PFFT!!! As if...MID!!!

EA Sports - There is no Game!

And just a week ago we were excited for a Mandalorian FPS. And more job losses - 1500 industry workers in just Sony and EA alone this week so far. Terrible news after terrible news.

WTF?!?!
They cancelled the most anticipated EA game from Respawn devs?
Are you ******* kidding me ?!

Addendum, with all these changes (not mistakes) that resulted in over 1k layoffs since last March, the Executive team will not be receiving a 40% salary bonus in 2024. That is now reduced to 38%.

EA: We were making a game that ppl wanted and realized we could make a worse game and make more money.

Remedy Takes Full Control of Control Franchise From 505 Games

Remedy Entertainment has announced that they've purchased the full rights to the Control franchise from 505 Games.

Oh nice, I wonder if they'll try to do the same with Max Payne 🤔

-Foxtrot10h ago

I hope so, Rockstar ain't doing shit with it sadly.

I loved the gameplay in Max Payne 3, it was fantastic but it just didn't feel like Max Payne at its core, it felt like they were doing a new IP or experimenting with one and reshaped it into Max Payne

The Noire, the atmosphere, the dark grittiness, the graphic novel cutscenes, Mona Saxx were all missing.

I'm hoping if they ever get the rights back they do their own version of Max Payne 3, off the secret ending from MP2 where Mona survives.

Max was finally starting to heal thanks to Mona in MP2 and in MP3 they just put his character back to square one, all that development gone.

Kinda what I'm thinking too, like as much as I'd love for R* to give it their unmatched magic touch, they're not doing anything with it.

I loved MP3, only gripe was that the story had very little to do with Max personally but it was still great. The Mona ending would be amazing and honestly not entirely out of the realm since MP is kinda considered part of the control universe, though I would like that to stay out of MP as much as possible and be it's own thing.

The fact that we haven't gotten a MP3 remaster is crazy imo

Why would you need a Max Payne 3 remaster? You must be on console.

isarai1h ago

I'm on both, still want a remaster

I think Control was a great game that deserves a sequel

Machina22m ago

A sequel is in the works - they announced it a couple of years ago.
