Because it (used to) offer some form of security for the studio, they dont have to worry about shopping around ideas to get another publisher every time a project is about to end. Of course I think that concept has died out and we're seeing the tail end of those days here.

I really don't understand why any dev studio would agree to be bought out by a publisher. Publisher-owned studios are almost always the first to die.

Now why the hell did anyone give Broussard a job?

They didn't. He's just a gossiper.
