      Prey had the frenchie as game director before he left Arkane, and said frenchie picked a good team of writers
      supposedly most of the Prey staff left the studio after it was announced they're forced to make redfall a liveservice game

      it's arkane in name only now

        So the same situation with Respawn, minus the closing down part.
        Now we have to also look at lists of people and compare them with previous lists of people just to make sure the games are built by the studio we know... I fricking hate modern gaming

        He was one of Arkane founders, too. Hope he keeps making games after Weird West.

      easy, exec says make me GAAS game NOW.
      you try, you fail because nobody in the studio is interested
      I seriously think due to how positive everyone thinks about Prey now Prey 2 to would be popular.

      Some key figures left the studio, in addition to the fact that talented people can still have bad ideas. It had nothing to do with live service; they had been working on Redfall since before the acquisition and by all accounts, MS left them alone to finish the game.

      I read that 80% percent of the team left. Plus to be honest the game was pushed out of the door prematurely.

    >Arkane Austin
    It's obvious them having to go the live service game route was a Zenimax mandate. On top of that, the game was blatantly rushed and there are many reports that say they wanted it cancelled so they could work on something good. These guys did Dishonored and Prey. It'd be like shutting down Arkane Lyons based on Deathloop. They most certainly did not deserve it.
    >Tango Gameworks
    Obviously not deserved. If Microsoft wants to keep the image of being a medium for good games, then getting rid of a studio that just did a critically acclaimed and beloved game is moronic. This is also a very short sighted decision, because it yet again proves Japanese people shouldn't trust Microsoft
    >Alpha Dog

    >Roundhouse Studios
    These guys didn't deserve to coast for so long doing jackshit to begin with. The history behind this studio is scummy as hell and they never did anything worth a shit.

    Arkane
    It should be legal and enforced to close down studios if the people who founded them and build their legacy either fricked off or got hired, to prevent situations of random shitshins and women working there then being like "yes hello this is us the real [STUDIO] and definitely creators of all these iconic games you loved! Guess what? We're coming at you with a brand new progressive and diverse game about student loans that is a successor to [POPULAR GAME STUDIO MADE] which we totally created by thethe way" - those fricks should be forced to either go somewhere else or work under a different name.
    Also it should be illegal for people who never worked on a game to make a "remaster", "remake" or "sequel" for it.

    how was redfall even concepted ,why vampires , was there a big vampire craze when they came up with the idea , what was the point of the game gameplay loop wise , since i havent played ot , is it left for dead style horde game , borderlands style encounters ? how is it even a GAAs game , do they sell skins , is there pvp ? why would invest into spending additional money for skins or battlepass even if game is good , if it was just pve ?

      Redfall was Bethesda the publisher wanting their own GaaS title inspired by Borderlands. They only went back on the GaaS part as public sentiment changed and desperately retooled the game.

        it was pretty funny to see, poor Harvey, I like his design, he didn't deserve this
        I actually dislike oongabunga from Lyon studio, he sort of tries to make the same thing but Deathloop wasn't that interesting for soemr eason even sompared to Dishonored 2

          Deathloop was the death knell of Arkane, even DotO didn't make it clear.

            Deathloop as a concept of 1960 spy humorous thriller could've been glorious, just like No One Lives Forever but they had to play with this open world and loop bullshit

    people dont get this is microsoft dealing with bethesda's mess. as they have zero investment in any of this they probably just looked at the figures and made the cuts.

      my conspiracy theory it's because Starfield flopped ahrd, instead of punishing Todd they cut what they think isn't as valuable

        how would it not flop , its on gamepass, and there were 1$ gamepass deals , surely Microsoft knew no one would buy their games if they can get it for super cheap on gamepass and then unsubscribe as soon as theyre done with the games theyre interested in , everyone tried out Starfield because muh Bethesda, before they even knew it was their worst game, if that was a purchase instead of gamepass , that would have been clean 70$ for each sucker , and since the opening of the game +character customization take long time , refund limit of 2hrs would've already been broken

          It stopped being $1 when Starfield came out.

            yes but a lot of people took a whole year in advance deal that Microsoft couldnt just upcharge them for suddenly,since they had to honor the deal

        Starfield was one of the top selling games of last year. It didn't flop.

    Prey is a 7/10 game. And if I reviewed it based on my subjective enjoyment the score would be even lower

      PREY has nothing to do with Prey beyond a name re-use which was mandated on Arkane anyway.

    Arkane deserves it. You cannot triple down on the "shoehorn blacks into every game" shit, after seeing it fail time and time again. Dishonored jogger DLC (nobody played), then Kickloop (nobody played), then Shaniqua the Vampire Slayer (nobody played).
