Hopefully THQ stays in there, oh wait, they don't publish any good games, whatever then.
THQ: Goodbye to Danny Bilson, Hello to Jason Rubin
And it should be early enough in the development cycle to make the switch if they so desire!
So will the next THQ game will be a Cart Racer?
I'll be here all week, folks!
And they've released three Saints Row games so the timing is perfect!
I actually never figured out why THQ was in the shits in the first place. I feel like they publish a ton of really great games.. Are they just messing up completely on the business front or something? I mean.. They've arguably released the best RTS games of the past decade (CoH and the DoW series), and they have lots of.... actually, scratch that. Did a wiki search for all the games they've published... I see now why they're kinda boned.. Jesus..
Their games sold fine. It's the 1 million+ uDraw tablets they have sitting in a warehouse somewhere that almost bankrupted them. Sold well on the Wii, bet hard on it also selling on the 360 & PS3. That was a lost bet.
It seems like the last thing I heard of Rubin was that awesome DICE keynote in 2004, where he advocated for the talent taking control of the industry and getting their due instead of giving publishers and marketing all the power. Then he fell off the radar for 8 years, and now this? Colour me intrigued.
Man I loved that talk at DICE, it made the man something of a game development hero to me. "The fist is not a mistake in these slides."
