Yeah, not the brightest decision.
Unbelievable. This is the kind of title you need to release in July when there's nothing else to play and people will pick it up because they're bored.

Oh come on guys, you all know what November means since at least 1995. Now we're gonna criticize classic November game releases too?

It's not november game releases in general, it's releasing a game that doesn't have a huge following at roughly the same time as Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Diablo 3 and god knows what else.

They have an IP that people love, but the game is not part of a series that gamers are familiar with so they'll be skeptical and skeptical gamers at a time when they have a ton of other AAA titles to choose from means you're killing your own sales.

Creston's right on the money. Early summer release would have done them wonders for sales. Maybe they couldn't get it done in time, who knows. Maybe they actually think they can compete with the behemoths that are coming out this november. Either way, they shot themselves in the foot and will probably blame it on the PC gaming market.
