Are developers killing their franchises?

TVGB: "Can you ever have too many?

It seems a simple enough question. When related to gaming, can too many ever become a bad thing? What I mean is, how long does it take before a series runs dry? How long can these developers keep our interest piqued? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Instantly, one fairly simple question has become four questions of increasing complexity.

You serious no Jesper Kyde? His musical score had such influence in the game. Why on earth would they get rid of him?

capcom killed and is still killing Resident Evil.

If they killed RE, then they definitely destroyed, burned, massacred, decapitated, mutilated Devil May Cry.

I don't know about everybody else, but I am excited for AC III. The franchise is far from dead in my eyes.
On the other side, the developer of the new Tomb Raiders seem to be doing a good job bringing that franchise back from the dead.

AC III shouldn't be the image of this article, wtf?
