Twilight for Twilight War

Sad News for Smiling Gator Twilight War: After the Fall (thanks Frans and Dentist) announces the insolvency of Smiling Gator Productions, who were at work on Twilight War: After the Fall, a Source-engine MMORPG. Word is:
It's not a Happy New Year here at Smiling Gator Productions.

Unfortunately, the end of 2005 is also the end of SGP. Our committed funds have run dry and we were not successful in the hunt for additional investment. The websites and email will be disabled in the coming days, so this is our last announcement before we shut down for good. Thanks again to our fantastic forums community for all the support and contributions! We hope you find another project and give them the devotion and incisive comments we've enjoyed reading for the past 17 months.

So tell me, what proof do you have that I am wrong and you are right? At least I have logical reasons behind my guess.

Lemme throw this out. Last quarter Vivendi games division made 7 million euros profit (google vivendi quarterly profit and find a news story that breaks it down by division). Vivendi owns blizzard. Thats less than a measly 2 million profit a month. They obviously aren't raking in $75 million a month. Nor $50 million either. Suddenly my estimate that they are making less than 50% profit seems a lot more likely.

In fact if you compare it to the quarterly numbers a year ago, they lost 32 million (no profit) that quarter. So even if you figure that WoW made up that differance all by itself (and aren't counting how the USA is doing better economically than a year ago or any other profits), thats still a mere $40 million in 4 months. $10 million a month. Thats less than 15% of the $75 million a month in subscription income @ $15 a month.
