It could be more of a threat to the playerbase saying you better buy this one. But I think anything's possible.News to me.. It wouldn't surprise me given team size, but at the same time, EQ makes money, so I can't imagine why they'd stop development on it, especially when people buy them.
Well they shouldn’t have shit on their players and fans with their money raping hidden payment schemes and brought in Marxist bullshit to railroad established franchises. I don’t PC game anymore not because I don’t have money or time. I don’t because they produced nothing but shit for multiple years running while wanting me to spend hundreds on their garbage. Now I play a switch casually and fill the extra time with fucking myI think gaming companies, like every other company, see the storm coming economically. IMO we're just seeing evidence of them buttoning down the hatches and preparing for what is to come.
Get as much money as we can right now because there may not be nearly as much disposable income available next year.
I would credit the shift at Blizzard to something similar. IMO We won't see AAA companies taking any risks whatsoever for the foreseeable future.

Blizzard was owned by Vevendi when they were making their Warcraft games and were considered a niche studio. What made them a AAA studio was their wild success on World of Warcraft in 2004.You're right, but EQ:Next was a risky venture even if it had been fully baked by a competent team/designer. Blizzard has been especially risk averse though so your point is well taken. All I'm saying is DBG releasing a Battle Royale game really shouldn't surprise any of us if they think it is a safe way to flip some PS2 assets to capitalize on a fad genre. Same thing with Blizzard trying to tap into the asian mobile market.
