  • Another great dev sent to the COD mines by Activision. Just as franchises like Spyro and Crash were making a comeback too. Not like this. Not another Ravensoft.

    • It’s sad that we may not get any more Spyro or Crash games. COD gets a new game every year and it’s more or less the same. While these to beloved franchises that people have been yearning for may be abandoned again without Toys for Bob to make sequels. I could care less about call of duty.

    • Honestly if this point it would not be a good idea for future indie companies to sign a contract with other studios, and/or big companies. I understand why they do it, but considering the trend and current year social climate I would not advise it. The other I hope new indie companies do is draw out their own contracts to not only protect their IP's, but own control over their own projects if they want to join a company in general.

  • Toys for Bob gets shifted to make a boring shooter, only for them to die later along the others. Me: *in tears* They can't keep getting away with this.

  • Personally, I lost any trust I had in Activision when they, in a way, killed off any chance we had of a good Transformers game series, and then ended online service and took said series off Steam and other platforms. So this doesn't surprise me.

  • Does Activision even make anything else besides COD anymore? Ignoring Sekiro and Blizzard, have they done anything noticeable that isn't COD? Say what you want about EA, you can at least mention plenty of noteworthy games that isn't Fifa or Madden in the past 10 years. Activision should just change their name to Call of duty because that's all they want to do nowadays.

  • It's funny that during the rumor of square enix wanting to be sold people were actually excited because for some reason they thought that their favorite obscure franchise would be saved when in reality this is the Fate that would have awaited them no matter what studio they got bought by

  • I mean, this is exactly what happened to multiple studios under the Activision banner. So there's little hope they'll escape the fate of becoming a sole support studio.

  • TFB seems quite literally in name only now, and VV jumped ship to Blizzard (and we all know what happened to these guys...) just as Crash, Spyro & THPS got their old spark back. Even EA themselves are more open than this (see: EA Originals). How many more friggin' studios do you need all at once for just one single franchise, like damn, this is ridiculous. I'm not even sure they'll hire outside devs for those three going forward at this point. I'm afraid it's all COD from now on. Fuck this.

  • I'm more worried about activision implementing all these studios to do support work for cod warzone. Raven was a simple support along 2-3 other studios during the first year of modern warfares/warzones lifetime, With infinity ward being the main workforces. But now as IW went to work on Modern warfare 2, They were left with balancing Warzone, And It's pretty clear that raven software has no fucking clue what they are doing.... At least when it comes to balancing weapons. Now while I won't deny the merits of Toys for Bob devs, I do not feel comfortable if they are being put in the same shoes where raven is currently. You may make a hell of a platformer, But I wouldn't trust you to balance FPS games weapon meta for jack shit. Then again I could be wrong and maybe TFB devs are huge cod fans and actually know what they are doing, Unlikely but its a possibility.

  • I used to think having more people play games was good for the future of gaming but at this point I'd rather casuals just go away. It's ruining the industry. Companies that make quality content and don't make as much as microtransaction games (which is impossible to compete with), just get swallowed or give in and make those types of games.

  • At the moment imo Activision is building an amazing world with Warzone, I feel the focus being directed towards it currently is just a matter of helping form the world given how big of an undertaking it is. I'm sure the teams will return to the projects they're best known for at some point in the future.

And a wise man once said "don't put all your fucking eggs in the same fucking basket!?!?!?!?!" I'm sure it's a common phrase, but with American businesses you have to be bloody clear.
