Quote:
Electronic Arts announced it will acquire Titanfall maker Respawn Entertainmentfor $315 million in cash and stock, plus a possible bonus of $140 million. The deal could bring a new long-term franchise into the fold for the big third-party publisher of video games, giving EA an edge in the multibillion-dollar first-person shooter genre with properties such as Titanfall, Battlefront, and Battlefield

Hopefully they can respawn in another company after EA kills them like bioware. Didn't another top guy that worked on Anthem just leave recently?


The team that worked titanfall should have went to bethesda to make single player shooters like ID software.

EA just make gambling simulators now.

The release timing of Titanfall 2 makes sense now, EA deliberately sabotaged the release so they could buy out Respawn.

Woke up to this in my newsfeed, genuinely bummed. Titanfall 2 was criminally underrated. EA will gut them.

I believe that. But if you were to get a time machine and tell respawn this back then they'd label you a conspiracy theorist.

Should have taken my advice and port the game to switch. Now that switch is selling well they missed out on easy money since the switch lacks FPS games. (bethesda is cleverly taking advantage of this by allowing ports of doom and wolfenstein 2 (may not retain next gen quality but it fills a gap in the library)

Lot of companies need to be warned about selling out to the illuminati. They (the little guys) are threats to the big guys so the big guy ends up becoming the smaller developers sugar daddy as long as your game doesn't fail commercially and they retain final say on what can go in and what gets taken out of the games. They will leave you alone if you boost profit,but would rather just take your soul instead.

Once you fail commercially, you are thrown off the cliff like a sick baby like the scene in 300 movie adaptation. Only the strong get to live. 'strength' meaning how much money your game makes not how good the quality is.

EA do not want creative genuines, they want Soundwave from the decepticons who just follows orders without thinking about themselves and gets the job done without emotion or style.. I hope these guys know that and have exit strategy for when EA kills their company. The competition is tougher today so they had no option but to cave and become someone eles bitch. Game industry is turning into the music industry. Hehe Respawn is like Michael Jackson trying to escape the plantation but the greedy reptilians are ploting against him to control everything. The only solution is educate the next generation of coders and artists about the treatement so they know what they are getting into.
To beat a snake you got to act like one in self defence but without becoming one yourself. Pass on your knowledge. Then when the crash comes you can take advantage of the fall by aqcuiring things people are seling for dirt cheap.

With edumacashun we can alter what timeline we are on and interfere with the reptilion's evil plans and fight the future._
