Bulletstorm Sequel Cancelled; PC Piracy Mentioned

In spite of EA saying the original "under-performed," a sequel to Bulletstorm was in the works at People Can Fly before being cancelled by parent company Epic Games reports GameSpot, who hear from Epic president Mike Capps on the topic. Mike indicates they have put the Polish developer on a different project they will "be announcing pretty soon," though there is no clue if this is the recently revealed PC game Epic is planning. "We thought a lot about a sequel, and had done some initial development on it, but we found a project that we thought was a better fit for People Can Fly," he said. "We haven't announced that yet, but we will be announcing it pretty soon." He goes on to praise Bulletstorm and says he'd love to go back to the property, "but right now we don't have anything to talk about." Just to stir the pot a little, the story concludes with Capps' comment that sales of the PC version may have been harmed by piracy: "We made a PC version of Bulletstorm, and it didn't do very well on PC and I think a lot of that was due to piracy. It wasn't the best PC port ever, sure, but also piracy was a pretty big problem."

And Beamer once again being the fucking industry apologetic. No surprises there either.

What baffles me here is that I don't get how what I'm saying makes me an apologist.

To break down my points:
1) Piracy is not a good thing
2) Piracy leads to lost sales
3) Piracy is inevitable
4) Piracy does not break many games, if any
5) Piracy estimates should possibly be built into sales estimates, but more likely don't need to be as it's kind of independent
6) Developers hate piracy from an emotional standpoint and their opinions about piracy aren't always rational for that reason, much like a parent often doesn't react rationally to a child being picked on by another child

Somehow this is apologizing, most likely because you seem to think piracy leads to higher revenues.

You left out all those numbers about torrents you pulled out from fantasy land. And many more details like that. If you are a rational person and not an apologist you wouldn't have said, let me see, " Bulletstorm was pirated more than a million times."

That kind of idiotic shit, making up fake data without any evidence whatsoever, turns you into a fucking apologist. Want to gain respect from everyone here? Stop making shit up to defend a decaying industry, it's that simple.
