2K Czech and Bohemia Interactive Vets Form Studio

Veterans of Mafia developer 2K Czech and original Operation Flashpoint studio Bohemia Interactive have formed a new studio called Warhorse, reports Eurogamer. They offer a quote from the company's website, but the link is broken, and we can't find the original (though we did find the Warhorse Games Website that's a home to a different developer. While they don't offer specifics on game plans, they do outline their mission statement: "There is a common thread running through our previous games: open worlds, strong storyline and, last but not least, realistic design. We can proudly say that the games Mafia and Operation Flashpoint were the vanguard of this approach and millions of players worldwide clearly share our view. Even if our new project is different in many respects, it is a game that is not going to disappoint fans of open realistic worlds and quality stories."

Nobody said anything like that. The developer always looses when the publisher makes poor and stupid descisions. There's no way around that besides leaving the company, found a new one and go Indie.

A new studio hopefully free from the old publisher is certainly a reason to be pleased. That's the sort of situation that tends to create more original, creative products.

It did? Good! Not because of the game itself, but because of the horrible DLC strategy which has mutilated the initial release.

I don't see any reason to be pleased about this. The DLC strategy wasn't the developer's fault. The fact that it bombed means we will probably never see another Mafia game, which is a shame if you enjoyed the previous games (which I personally did).

Agreed, they basically butchered the game to accommodate their DLC strategy, it was insulting.

I wonder if this means that 2K Czech is in danger of being shut down after Mafia 2 bombed in sales.

It's going to be interesting if they merge their 3D engines. Hmmm.

here's the website http://www.warhorsestudios.cz/index.php?page=aboutus&lang=en

the other guys aren't ex-bohemia, they are ex-altar games (original war, ufo afterlight). I don't believe altar have changed their studio name to bohemia yet (but black element might have, can't remember), although they are a member of the idea games studio collective with bohemia.
