Guessed I missed Levine leaving 2k, probably better off, best of luck!
He hasnt.

"Ghost Story" is nothing more than a rebranded "Irrational Games". This new company still belongs to Take2. See the site footer: "© 2002-2017 Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc."

This sounds more like a nuke it from orbit strategy, targeting anything that even hints at infringement, regardless of actual content, and then issuing take downs for sites that don't even exist yet, but could exist in the future, and might have infringing material on it. That's nuts, and Google is okay with it, they just don't want more rules. I shudder to think what more would look like.
Do you know what this is?

Its probably fraud. Probable DMCA takedown fraud by the service contractor the rights holder use to enforce their copyright:

https://torrentfreak.com/pirate-site-with-no-traffic-attracts-49m-mainly-bogus-dmca-notices-170219/

"So in summary, APDIF makes up its own URLs, MP3Toys randomly generates a page of music that has nothing to do with the URL input, APDIF logs it as an infringement of its clients’ rights, and sends a complaint to Google."

Like the click fraud some service contractors are doing in the realm of online advertising, this seems to me like "DMCA notice fraud" to scam the copyright holders.

People without money should be able to submit claims without worrying that a mistake will result in heavy penalties, ...
A DMCA claim should be a sharp scalpel, used for a very specific, well reasoned purpose. Its misuse should result in a hefty fine. Because you can cause real damage, if you misuse it, be it on purpose or accidently.

A DMCA notice should NOT be a blunt mace, which any shmuck can wiggle around without ever thinking one second about it.

Perplexing to see someone from Digital Devolver of all places get caught up in political bullshit fever.
Why? DD was started to make things differently in the biziness and they DO things differently. Especially their marketing is doing things VERY differently. Lightyears away from the boring hyperbole of the majors, DD always made funny, witty and ... well, honest marketing campaigns for their games. No nonsense with optimized screenshots, faked gameplay trailers and such things.

Gold sellers and gold farmers will have a field day
I don't know, ever since the end of the previous expansion you've been able to redeem gold for tokens. Some people even saved up over a dozen tokens (due to gold being very easy to get until this last expansion).

This is more of.. keeping the money flowing within their own games. Now you can play WoW, or are kept more "interested" in playing WoW, to earn more gold, to get a token to redeem for more WoW time, to play and make more gold, to get a token to redeem for "free" (lol) Overwatch boxes.
Still, Gold sellers and farmers will have a field day

Blizzard made them nearly extinct by simply increasing the amount of gold you can "earn" in the game with questing, looting and crafting. Gold ceased to be a problem entirely!!

But since introduction of the very expensive) tokens, ingame gold is once again a rare commodity. And this move only worsens the situation.

And i thought at Blizzard they have learned their lesson ... but hey, people leave. And take their knowledge and experience with them.

Didn't they poor a bunch of money into Homefront sequel? The one that failed big time, probably more so than the original.
Crytek sold the game two (?) years ago to DeepSilver/Koch Media.

Call of Duty? There's no CoD in that bundle. World At War is on sale, but not part of the bundle that shows from that link in the story.
Not in THAT bundle, true. But the whole winter sale contains way more than the games you find from that link and i thought you meant the entire sales campaign

A new NOLF would be great!
And please let someone else do it than Nightdive Studios. They were soooo close to finally sort out the rights jungle, only to piss of Warner with a frivolous trademark registration for NOLF. They thought it would speed up the process, forcing Warner to finally make a descision. Well, Warner made a descision: They said "No, you will not get anything!".

I rarely get mad, but there was one moment of blood-red anger.

Their engine tech has always been impressive, Far Cry eventually came out of a tech demo for their engine (think they got some funding from Nvidia and turned it into a game, memory's really foggy but there's probably still some old videos floating around regarding it).
That's right. At first they wanted to make some kind of dinosaur game like Jurrasic Park on the basis of their "Dinosaur Island" tech demo, which featured mainly massive vegetation rendering. Ubisoft stepped in as a major financing partner and steered the direction to a more traditional shooter.

But sadly the Yerlis never understood the importance of creating a complete (!) engine package, including full support for third party tools and full service for developers. They had only interest in creating the best renderer. Nothing more is the CryEngine. A dammned good renderer with still the best and most accurate lighting effects ... and then some half-assed code to make a "game engine".

But the people creating this renderer are longer around. You already mentioned top personnel going to id Software. Two years ago the core engine team including the "inventor" of the modern CryEngine, left to found CIG Frankfurt. I doubt they will find enough good programming talent to continue the CryEngine as a competitive renderer.

I vaguely remember them opening way more studios than made sense. Now that they're closing "five studios in five countries" the first thing that came to mind was where the hell are all the games. The only recent one I remember is The Climb which has a tiny potential customer base.
Crytek made good money with defense contracting. Simulators for the german army and the arms industry. I know someone who quit his job at Crytek for that specific reason. He said, that he wanted to make shooters and not murder simulations. Which sounds funny at first, but it is the destinction between making a game that people can have fun with and making a simulation to help people to actually better kill other people for realz.
