I'm not saying it's impossible that another developer would want to do it and would do it justice. That's just rarely the case when a franchise changes hands. (3 minutes ago)
And some of them work at Arkane, so I guess that makes sense. (5 minutes ago)
And that's a pretty baseless statement. Just paging through Mobygames, most of the Half Life 2 staff still works at Valve. (6 minutes ago)
They've lost SOME of their key staff. Staff that they can replace as easily as farming out the game to some third party. (10 minutes ago)
Good interview with Phil Harrison: [url] (14 minutes ago)
so why does it matter if they make the next one or not? it's like people being excited about rare making a new perfect dark when the people who made perfect dark 1 on the N64 are long gone. (34 minutes ago)
and the mention of brands being popular is ironic seeing as that's all dev studio's are. valve today is nothing like valve when half life was being made. they've lost all of their key staff. (35 minutes ago)
