Itís not that Fargo hates publishers, they are a necessary evilÖ itís that they wouldnít fund the projects he wanted to do.
Since Wasteland 2 is already funded, the publisher wonít get the chance to interfere with Brianís vision for the game.
Besides, I doubt Brian Fargo wants to spend HALF of the pledges towards marketing, fulfillment, and product support. Iím sure youíll agree, that money is better spent on game content.

"Of COURSE I have had some publishers call me to voice their interest in Wasteland and of me doing RPGs. I knew that was coming. I had one group that wanted to fund my marketing for a piece of the pie. I politely explained that we have an ARMY of fans who are better than any marketing campaign."

from an interview on ripten

I love it. Fucking publishers wouldn't give him the time of day, then they see all those filthy PC pirates putting up 3 million dollars in ADVANCE for this game, and suddenly they're his best friend.

God I hate publishers so much.

Thanks for the linkies, Headwound!
