I've often said game publishers don't just want some of the money, they want ALL of the money. We may have to amend that, because I'm starting to think not even all of the money is enough anymore.
This bit of news is perfectly timed during a period where I'm talking about the broken economic system that might make "AAA" growth unsustainable. Because shareholders expect more money every year, even huge blockbuster successes can make shares drop. We've just seen this with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Giant success leading to a drop in shares, because it just wasn't successful enough.
While shares go up and down, this backs up a lot of my recent assertions regarding the "AAA" industry making more money than is healthy.
