      >We need smaller games that give us prestige and awards
      is the quote. To be fair, I don't think Hi-Fi rush was winning many awards, but then smaller games in general tend not to win awards, it's the big releases that cater to the broadest audience, like AAA cinematic games that win the most awards. Hi-Fi Rush did as well as ytou could hope for a title of its scale in any case so to say they want smaller games and then can Tango is still nonsensical.

          That's still a low bar, Microsoft's games over the past 10 years or something or lucky to even receive positive acclaim, nevermind being elevated to the status of award-winning. To axe Tango when they made one of the only games of theirs to receive either in ages was moronic regardless.

        Studios who sell out to giants like Microsoft tend to be bleeding money and have little other options, particularly if they can make decent upfront profits before getting liquidated and moving on in life to other studios or work fields. It's also why Kotick butchered most of Activision's studios for CoD-priority before cashing out to M$ and retiring, or why that Italian homosexual who ran Unity nearly destroyed the entire indie scene just to hail-mary money out from them.

      They needed to fricking advertise the game instead of borderline shadowdropping it out of nowhere. It's lucky to have gotten the 3mil sales it did, all things considered.

      Besides pumping Gamepass titles to please investors it's just brand-denial for opponents as Microsoft has always done since taking Rare from Nintendo. CoD and Bethesda RPG's are probably the only IP's they actually gave a frick about purchasing, and will likely continue chasing bloated GaaS titles at the expense of smaller AA titles they claim to "need" until the bubble actually bursts and are forced to switch strategies.

    Why are ResetEra trannies and Xitters so hell-bent on sensationalising Matt Booty being pragmatic and rational. They shuttered Tango cuz their games don't sell much at all, despite being mid-end production budgets, and with the volatility in the industry, he's saying they need more games like Pentiment or Mobile games that are small-dev-budget but give ways to monetize the gamer. In what world does "Small, prestige and gives awards" fit Hi-Fi Rush?

    It'd make more sense to make smaller games with the developers and their immediate managers under another studio rather than making them in a separate one with its own layers of infrastructure and extraneous departments.
