KAOS Studios Postmortem

Gamasutra has a postmortem on the rise and fall of KAOS Studios, the developer formed by the team that created the Desert Combat modification for Battlefield 1942. An interesting element of the story is how the studios expansion resulted in hiring developers with more complete resumes than the managers they were working for and other hurdles they had to overcome to succeed in an increasingly competitive FPS genre.

I'm all for the crash myself. It will hopefully get rid of companies like Activision and EA who just whore out the same series over and over. I cannot take another COD game every year for the rest of my life. If there is any series that has fully ruined the current market I lay sole blame on it. It is so successful that every other company has a "Me Too" Mentality about it and the problem with it is no one wants their copy cat game because it's not COD. And the series doesn't get BETTER it gets worse and people still pay for it. This is a huge problem for the other Publishers/Developers out there, when a mediocre game that is released yearly is the best selling game out there it's a problem.

Besides the PC Gaming industry will live on with F2P and Indie games, and Sony and Microsoft would bounce back after a few years.
