I was more so curious as to why it keeps happening is all, it's not like Warren hasn't been a part of teams that have put out great games, Ultima Underword, The original Deus Ex etc. Odd that he can't seem to keep a studio going for more than a title or two before moving on is all.

I think it's just the case that he makes reasonably unique products that aren't established brands. So, whereas Dice puts out an iteration on the same thing every couple of years, Warren's games are all or mostly one-offs. IF one doesn't meet expectations, down goes his studio. But he's got the name cred for all those classic games, so he can make a pitch, start up a new studio, and get funding.

That makes sense, and I do get the whole good game or not, money is what matters, that goes for any industry, but I was under the impression the games he's had involvement with over the years have generally done well at retail, perhaps I was wrong about that.
