Yeah, the letter is a load of PR spin rubbish. Levine will have contractual obligations which would either make him expensive to fire or a non compete clause, and will work out that period. 2k shut…

It was a sequel- hence the ridiculous Thi4f name it originally had- but hasn't been for a while. It's a reboot, officially now.

Shadowrun Returns suggests otherwise. The reaction to them going steam only (after saying there'd be drm free too) was sufficient that they went back to MS to renegogiate their contract. That was…

If there are any game etailers I'd be worried about it's the ones that are basically steam key resellers, not GOG. They're at the mercy of Valve and as soon as they start competing too successfully…
