Gamecock slams studio acquisitions

New publisher also questions the potential of digital downloads.
Develop reports that Gamecock's Mike Wilson has spoken out against studio acquisitions, branding them nonsensical – and he doesn't think digital distribution is the short-term quick fix everyone says it is, either.

Former Gathering of Developer bosses Mike Wilson and Harry Miller announced Gamecock's founding a few weeks back. The new publisher promises to treat developers much more equally than their stock market listed contemporaries, putting studio logos on the front of the box and only favouring new IP.

But the company isn't interested in acquiring any studios, with Wilson keen to quash the idea that publishers must merge with their development partners to build a business.

The story is too old to be commented.
