Splash Damage's Next Game "One of the Biggest American Pop Culture Brands"

A story on IndustryGamers on seven U.K. studios offers an interesting statement about the next project from Brink developer Splash Damage (thanks VG247):

You know Splash Damage from Brink, an online multiplayer shooter that saw limited success earlier in the year. But at a time when Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 are going head-to-head, it feels like the product of another age.

After its release there was some cruel chatter that Splash Damage might go the way of Bizarre or Black Rock, split apart after an expensive failure. However, being independent, the company has managed to sign at least one unannounced project for a major entertainment brand. The online multiplayer technology is already in place, and once a collection of well-known characters are laid over the top of an even more polished Brink engine there's going to be a lot of excitement from genre fans.

The game will be based on one of the biggest American pop culture brands of the last 50 years, and there's no doubt Splash Damage can do the licence justice. However, the project's success will depend a great deal on the backing it gets from the media company that owns the IP – a company widely believed to have given up on the console publishing business.

I don't think that is the reason at all, as it was released months before, but it still didn't help. It was a game where the marketing was better than the game itself. It fell flat because it lacked refinement/polish before it was released, and most everyone moved on already by the time the refinement/polish was implemented.

It wasn’t a bad game; it had a lot of potential, but just wasn’t executed well.
