Ghost Recon 2 PC Cancelled

Cancellation of Ghost Recon 2 PC on the Official Site (thanks Frans) has word that the PC edition of Ghost Recon 2 has been cancelled:
"This decision was not an easy one.

We did not want to disappoint the loyal Ghost Recon fans, but we did not want to risk releasing a final product that did not meet their high expectations. With the launch of Ghost Recon 3 planned for Winter 2005, significant human resources were needed to ensure the quality of the future instalment of the series, thus potentially jeopardizing the quality of either Ghost Recon 2 PC or Ghost Recon 3. Taking into account their close release dates, and the fact that we felt the third opus would be a much more satisfying and evolved gaming experience, we were forced to conclude that it was in the interest of gamers for us to cancel the PC version of Ghost Recon 2. But Ghost Recon 3 on PC will hit shelves the fourth quarter of 2005, so the wait won’t be long, and will definitely be worth it."

Ray,

Good points, but I'm still left wondering about the underlying math.

Yes, the console market is >> the PC market. Agreed. But the competiton is also much fiercer in the console market. GR2 for the consoles is competing against a wealth of other titles out there, while it would have a relatively open field in the PC market.

Now maybe the real numbers actually hold up, and you can make a console game that's like the other console titles in its class and still make a greater profit then releasing into an empty PC market. But I also wonder if the all the marketing guys are seeing the total size of the console market rather than what they can realistically get in that space glutted with other titles.
