After Vivendi's game division merged with Activision last year a lot of titles got cut by Activision. Among those titles was the action packed shooter WET from developer A2M. During an interview with Dutch website Gaming Only at an event for the game in Amsterdam today, the game's Creative Director Patrick Fortier, told a different story. He says that after they heard that Activision would not be publishing all of Vivendi's titles, A2M took matters into their own hand and bought back all the rights from Vivendi. Fortier said "we (A2M) did not have enough faith that WET would be at the right place with Activision". He also added that they did not want to wait to find out if the game was still going to be published by Activision or if it would be dropped.
When talking about new publisher Bethesda Fortier said "we are really happy with Bethesda Softworks, they haven't limited us in any way". During the time WET did not have a publisher A2M had several parties that were interested in publishing WET. They chose Bethesda, because they felt best at home with them according to Frontier.
