Fuck, anyone wanna go partners on buying Red Faction and SupCom?

I wish I had Curt Schilling money. I'd buy both licenses, give Supcom to Chris Taylor and tell him to make another, and see if I could poach enough Volition guys out from Deep Silver's shitty ass to make another good Red Faction.

If you buy both licenses for, say, 5 million each, and spend 15-20 million building both games, there's no way you don't make out like a bandit on that.


Yeah, me too, if I had Curt Schilling cash. And I don't think you'd have to pay $5m for the licenses. I'm sure they'll go for much less than that, maybe $500K. It only cost $10m to make SupCom, and it didn't make $1b like CoD.

EDIT: Ideal situation: Wargaming buys SupCom and gives it to GPG to make SupCom 3.
