    Because sometimes news doesn't fit into a nice little console thread.

    The impetus of this thread is this.

    I find this immensely disappointing news.

    The guy was one of the key players in the creation of the Assassin's Creed series and his team has been working on new IP for sometime.

    This sacking has thrown the new IP into some sort of legal hell.

    I've heard Game Informer staff talking about him on their podcast and he was ridiculously excited about this project before the studios acquisition by Ubisoft via the THQ auction.

    Not unexpected, but surprising that he was the one let go and not him walking out.

    I guess he burnt his bridges when he walked out on Ubisoft that they just didn't want him there when they purchased his dev, which makes things weird when you think about the discussions going on before the purchase of the developer and title that they're making.

    Either what they've seen of the game is extremely awesome that they couldn't pass up the opportunity of getting the game under their belt. Or they were just looking to do to Desilets what he did to them.

    Very weird.

    I was expecting him to be contracted to finish the game and then leave.

    It really is a shame, hopefully what he has created will be worth all the fuss.

    Great news.

    Not a fan of Activision and the games their developers produce but i've loved pretty much everything Blizzard has ever done. Diablo 3 being a solid low point.

    They might be tight for cash for a few years but i'm sure this will free them up in the long run to do new and interesting things.

    It basically just frees them up from not being leached by Vivendi (who were looking to take out a 3 billion dollar loan in Activision's name to cover their own losses).

    I like the move as it gives them control and means that they won't die out. They still provide some worthwhile franchises, so I'm glad they are hanging about.

    Wasn't sure where to post this.

    He got pissed off because some guy at Gametrailers basically called him and Blow arrogant pricks and referred to them as blowfish, meltdown followed.

    Put that stuff into this thread, as it's turned into Fez 2 being cancelled news. Which sucks. :(

    Hopefully it's just a heat of the moment thing and when everything calms down they can go back and keep Fez 2 alive.

    I think you've linked the wrong video or something, there's nothing about the Phil Fish stuff there?

    Well this is bizarre. The link is correct, but for some reason it takes you to an entirely different video. Now whenever I try to click on the correct video directly from Gametrailers, I get a 'The page isn't redirecting properly'.

    Basically, he's having a massive go at Jonathan Blow & Phil Fish because of their whining & bitching over the gaming media wanting their opinion on the XBone's Development Kit, and says they should be happy they're respected figures in the industry. It escalated to the point of a Phil Fish meltdown, the cancellation of Fez 2, & now Marcus Beer is getting ragged on by a barrage of idiots on twitter & even receiving death threats.

    Take-Two CEO hints at Red Dead Redemption 2


    Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has dropped the greatest hint yet that a sequel to 2010 open-world hit Red Dead Redemption could be in the works.
    Speaking during Take-Two's Q1 FY14 earnings results last night, Zelnick stated that the publisher's goal is "to try to create permanent franchises", before referencing BioShock, Borderlands and Red Dead.

    I bloody hope it's not Redemption 2 and instead they use the GTA model of a whole new cast/time/location for RDR3.

    I really don't want to play a whole game as Baby Boy Marston.
