Emergent Selling Gamebryo

Middleware studio Gamebryo's Gamebyro Lightspeed engine is now for sale, reports (registration required) where they say the move is being forced by investor Venture Lending and Leasing V, inc, who have liquidation group Gerbsman Partners orchestrating a sale of assets. Word is the sale is for "the acquisition of all or substantially all of Emergent Game Technology's assets, including its Intellectual Property in whole or in part."

So it's very possible that Bethesda just has a bunch of fucking monkeys for coders...


That sounds like a safe guess. All their games are buggy messes. FO:NV still has the exact same crash issues that were in Fallout 3. Don't run the game on Nvidia cards or multiple cores or watch out (had a crash roughly every 2-3 hours.) Meanwhile the Civ series uses Gamebyro and doesn't crash.

Thing is, since Gamebyro is heavily associated with Bethesda's terrible coding, I can't help but wonder if Bethesda has damaged Gamebyro's reputation.
