Aren't Blizzard and Rockstar both self-determined companies, though—that is, nobody owns controlling amounts of stock outside the original group? I'm not too up on the business end of things, but I thought that Blizzard was one of the last big self-owned game developers.

If that's indeed the case, it's a whole different ballgame to produce a game within your own framework, to your own specs, no matter how large your company may have grown, than it is to do so as a smaller unit within a company that sets its own standards for your game's production.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.
