Yes but that staff eats up your resources everyday, and their not infinite they will run out. You were given x amount of money to make y, and publishers don't like giving more easily.

Marketing though is the most resource drain as it can cost $10 million or more on larger games. Look at the COD games for an example that is outrageous.

You also have to figure in rent and other expenses. If your using your own money it gets even worse.

Game development is not as easy as we think it is.
