    Honestly it doesn't sound good because at least the employees are still doing their jobs. Meanwhile bad games will continue being released because it's what the shareholders think will sell, and they probably fired so many people in the first place because they didn't want to reduce their own multi-million dollar wages nor the executives' wages. They are still going to avoid hiring veteran developers because experienced developers have standards.

    I´m pretty sure they did this to themselves. You can only get away with making generic media for so long before consumers decide it´s not worth their money. Same thing happened to Hollywood back in the 50´s. They over saturated the market of mediocre movies and people lost interest. They lost the whole next decade to european auteur and independent cinema and in the end had to compromise and just give money with no strings attached to talented individuals and hope they wouldn´t frick up.

    Luckily for them Lucas, Coppola, Scott and the rest really knew what people wanted and cinema came back better than ever before. Until what happened? Ah yes, the suits took over again and did the exact same thing that had almost lead them to bankruptcy.

    It´s gonna be the exact same thing here. Only companies willing to trust visionaries will survive.
