Halo PC Q&A

There's a Halo PC Q&A on Shacknews catching up with Chris DiCesar, a Microsoft PR representative, to find out what the status of the planned PC version of Halo, Bungie's Xbox FPS, as there has not been much said about this version lately. While Chris repeatedly offers assurances that PC and Mac versions are still planned, he also admits that when this will happen is "still up in the air," and that in fact, production on versions for other platforms has not actually begun. During the conversation he mentions multiplayer support as something that would be a highlight of the theoretical PC version, casts no further light on how Halo for the PC relates to the recent revelation that a sequel is in the works, and is unwilling to commit to a 2003 release.

Don't they? As a company, every single employee is "overhead", as a consumer, I am "profit". They owe "me" everything.
Not quite. As a "development" company, they work for the "publisher". As a "subsidiary" of the "publisher", they do not deal directly with the "customers".
With "freelance" development companies, they're "contracted". They rarely deal directly with the actual "money" from the game. They get paid a regular salary. The publisher is their client. They can get royalties, but that's about 10% of what they actually get paid.
It's the publisher that owes you something. Saying a developer owes you something is like saying that the cement mixer of the company that was hired by the company you work for to construct the building you work in owes you something.
You can only consume the product of the producer.
