Yes but at least two of them are interns. Of course, that doesn't mean much. They could be even better than a full employee if PB lucked out .

So we have a bigger team for a much smaller project and a publisher who is not in danger of running out of cash.
Well, thanks to Koch, JoWooD wasn't really in any danger of running out of cash during the development of Gothic 3 either. The financial basis for the development of Gothic 3 always seemed 100% secure.

Then JoWooD will have to prove that PB was indeed the limiting factor for G3´s quality, and not JoWooD´s chronically unstable business situation.
Huh? How so? When PB confessed and admitted all their little sins in regards to Gothic 3, they made it perfectly clear that they had full creative freedom and that it was basically their own fault that Gothic 3 turned out the way it did. I don't think that JoWooD has to prove anything. They depend very much on the quality of the developer they pick. Not their fault that PB didn't deliver quality work.
Let's just hope that PB manages to rediscover their old qualities and that JoWooD makes a good decision when they sign a studio for Gothic 4.
