Yea, canceling w40k mmo is definitely shifting focus away from licensed entertainment for children. A lot more is going on.

Since games are for kids, wouldn't every title in their collection be cancelled? : )

Looking at their PC game catalog... I've played exactly zero of their games. (Although there is a couple that I would consider).

The point is... they have a fairly pathetic line up for the PC, so I'm indifferent to whether they go under or not. Probably the few development companies that have decent PC games can find a better publisher anyway.

If Brian Farrell wasn't part of those laid off, nothing has been fixed yet.
