How many times have we seen a story like this on Bluesnews? A rumor about a gaming company comes out and shortly after, the company releases a statement denying the rumors. Then, a week or two later we find out it was entirely true. I've lost count over the years.
Yeah, but they have to deny it. Do you know what happens if they admit it?
They go bankrupt.
You want to do that at the last possible moment. As soon as you admit it, everyone treats you like you've already done it. It strains your finances even further and makes something that may only be likely now be guaranteed.
I totally understand that and was actually thinking exactly what you said as I was typing my original comment. They definitely have no choice but to hide it until the last possible moment. It's quite entertaining for us though since we see the same pattern over and over.
Yup. Depressing, really.
Crytek, though, is probably one of the few that's an outright surprise. Even 38 Greenmonster Whatever was surprising due to funding but a company many felt was probably not being managed overly well.
I hope Crytek can restructure and stay afloat. I have many fond memories from their games and would really hate to see them gone. I really enjoyed Farcry 1, especially MP.
