Understood Spec. Just don't want us to end up with the next Aliens where they stretch themselves too thin. And even though it's being done with another dev, can't believe Sega is trying Aliens again. I only hope some of the goodness from Borderlands somehow spills into the new game, otherwise, I have no idea about the genre and what it may or may not do sales wise.
I think it's a good move that they are only helping and not working directly on it since when they did Aliens, while doing B2 and who knows what else at the time, resulted in disaster for Aliens. No idea about MOBA since I don't play that, but this is a long way off, so who knows what will happen.
Yes assisting but it sounds like they are not doing much, just supervising IMO and after what happened to Aliens when they tried to do too many things at once, I think this is a good move.
Very nice. Now we know why the Pre Sequel is not being done by Gearbox. They are busy on something else.
Wow. What are you talking about? I never singled out Evolve. Never. I only said no way they ship all of those titles in the month. I also never wavered on that statement and still stand by it. No idea where Johnny R and Titanfall come into play here, but clearly something is wrong with you. Thanks, it's been fun playing, but you are now on ignore. All the best.
Thanks for the assist Sheep. Not sure what that was about as I was just commenting/making an observation that there is no way they all ship in Oct. Also, the fact that I keep my eye on things here, as well as many other places, seems to be costing him sleep somehow.
In any event, how about this as a change of tradition around here? How about TTWO ships one of those games EARLY to get it into the Sept qtr?! I would likely have to be resuscitated!
I guess you are still talking about me, but I never called myself a mensa, just trading, investing and following the industry for a long time. Have made far more than I have lost to be sure. Was trading binary calls from time to time and expecting strong price moves up to, during, and after GTA but it did not happen. One stock and while from my "mensa" area, still only one stock. I assure you, there is nothing to worry about with regard to my trading and investing. This year has been stellar so far and not even in the VG sector for me. This market has made it seem easy for many and I have been very, very fortunate. Thanks again for your concern.
Thanks for your concern, but as I said, I am in and out of this industry short, medium, and long term at various times over many years. No big deal about games being delayed, depending upon market reaction of course, just joining the conversation on the recent topic, and pointing out that TTWO seems to have jammed a lot into one month and I simply think that they have no intention of releasing everything currently in the month.
I just keep my eye on everything VG related even if I am not in any particular stock at the time. I have invested and traded in this sector in one form or another for nearly 30 years. FYI, my post was not intended to be either positive or negative, just saying I don't believe they will ship all of those games in October. Whether any delays cause a price change in the stock is another issue. Why do you care that I care?
Spec, that was my point, I don't think they will based on simply too many in one place. I wasn't suggesting the games would not be ready, but then it is a nice excuse that would appear to make sense with that many titles arriving at once. There are plenty of people that might not be smart enough to figure out that they are from different studios which should make it possible.
Check the articles about the October lineup in general, not to mention TTWO. Good one at Kotaku. Mark this post. I am rarely this positive, most of you know that, but no way in the world TTWO holds to the following schedule. No way at all and this means that they already know it's false.
October 7: Alien: Isolation / Dragon Age: Inquisition / Driveclub / Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor / NBA 2k15 / NBA Live 15
October 14: Borderlands: The Presequel / Raven's Cry
October 21: Battlefield Hardline, Evolve, Fantasia: Music Evolved, Just Dance 2015, The Evil Within
October 24: Civilization: Beyond Earth, Fantasy Life
October 28: Assassin's Creed Unity, Sunset Overdrive, WWE 2K15
Amen twochief, but I will point out that this one is multiplayer so that helps a lot and of course as many of us predicted on this board during the run up to LAN, once the story was known, the game was over or ruined for those who had not played yet. I don't think that applies here, but caution is never a bad thing. Happy 4th!
From a Gamespot email I just received:
Evolve is GameSpot's pick to be The Next Big Game. We played it at E3 and couldn't get enough of its four-on-one hunters-on-monster action. Based on our time with the game thus far, Evolve is a blast regardless of which role you're playing.
Sheep, I love Borderlands and no one would want the game early more than me, but this is TTWO we are talking about. Release a game early? That will happen right after I win the Powerball and Megamillions jackpots in the same week!
Thanks ttwo, I was just going to ask what was going on as I noticed one of my recent posts repeated word for word by a name I did not recognize.
Everybody thinks it only cost 10M. Have they worked on it since acquiring it for free? Will any marketing they spend on it be free? I'm not saying it's going to cost 50M, but it is not 10M either.
Spec, I think Bioshock and B2 are done with DLC and I think they were done as recently as this past March so they won't add to this fiscal year. Unless you were referring to the potential for the PreSequel DLC which will be the next Borderlands. I love that game and hope and pray it is even nearly as good as the last 2.
Spec, I think there will be in the sense that we will not see the huge initial sales volume of $60 each flying off the shelves or in the ethernet. I get your point, but GTA has always caused the huge spike we just had, and I don't think any DLC will come close to matching it.
