Maybe the sales figures don't bare it out but if I were running a small development house right now I wouldn't be trying to compete with the big boys and their ad budgets, I'd try keep budget under control and hit under served niche markets. A new take on a Civ style game, or XCom or JA or M&M or Wizardry or a million other great genres/franchise styles that have been left for dead.
I think they are absolutely convinced that there is no real market for those so called old school RPGs. I guess anything over Dragon Age is saturating the market. Although curiously, it seems just about every game out there likes to tout their RPG elements . . . go figure.
