It's funny, I think of Rockstar's 7-year deve cycles when I think of Take Two, and Codemasters I think of them pushing the same shit out the door every year FIFA-style. Maybe this aquisition qould do them some good. They need a good kick up the arse IMO.
Also a good point
The Steam reviews are Mixed for the latest Dirt and Grid releases, while Very Positive for F1. Suggesting that the developer has lost the mojo to appeal to casual fans whilst balancing the demands of all those with racing peripherals who want a technical foundation to a racing game. From what I see, the Career mode in F1 is the best yet.
Perhaps Codies will receive some story-writing talent from Take-Two... an injection of soul and context that make the races MATTER against your opponents, against your teammate. That's what makes all sports engaging, the drama in and between the teams as they push each other to win, or push too far and towards self-destruction. Motorsports is no different.
Dirt and Grid need some Borderlands and GTA personality, voice acting, dialog, plot, etc... that provides context and player interest into otherwise mundane gameplay
