They milked the market, destroyed the fanbase that got them where they were. Now they are cashing out.
"The fanbase that got them where they are" is such a rally cry with some people.
I'll never understand it. Somewhere out there dozens of people are saying the Beastie Boys sold out when they switched from hardcore to rap. Someone is whining that American Express should still be catering to the telegram business.
Gears of War 3 is their best selling title. Ever. And, creatively, they've left that behind, giving it to their sister studio so they can move on to something new.
They could've done Unreal and/or UT proper service while still pooping out Gears of War 3, it's not like there is a conflict. They just inexplicably drove those great franchises into the ground before they even turned into franchises, then blamed the boogeyman.
