What now for PGR4? Gameplayer examines the fallout from the Activision announcement regarding the purchase of developer Bizarre Creations, just prior to the on-sale of their highly anticipated racer. They suggest that Microsoft may now face an uphill battle marketing the game.
"Either way, the timing of this announcement couldn't be worse for PGR4. The game is getting respectable review scores and it certainly has a solid fan base, but we've suddenly found ourselves wondering some key questions. Who will manage community and server support into the future? Will the game receive quality downloadable content through its lifetime? Can we expect bugs and glitches to be ironed out with patches?"
