Turbine Layoffs

The Boston Globe has news of layoffs at Turbine, developer of Dungeons and Dragons Online and The Lord of the Rings Online, among other games. An unspecified number of jobs were lost as a result, said to be part of a larger round of cuts at parent company Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Thanks VG247.

*edit* and I meant no kidding as in they need to bring on AC II.


No, there needs to be a 2.

There was a 2... it failed... they shut it down.

But the reason it failed, as far as most AC 1 fans are concerned - including myself, was because 2 wasn't really a sequel... it was a completely different game with the name AC 2.

So, yes... they need to make a TRUE AC 2, but I'm not sure if that would be a success in this day and age. If they put a little GW2 mix in it (AC 1 with Modern Graphics Engine, and reward everyone for kills / let everyone revive, like GW2 )... they might have something that would be marketable... especially if Turbine comes out the gate with F2P, like GW2.
