[CVG]Steep console decline' triggers mass layoffs at 007 Legends dev Eurocom

"Eurocom are undertaking a restructuring which I regret to say has meant we've made the majority of our workforce redundant today," his statement read.

"This includes many very experienced, talented and highly skilled employees, and we'd like to thank them all for your hard work and efforts."

Binns suggested that it was the "steep decline in demand for console games" that had resulted in the studio losing out on a number of potential deals with publishers.

It's a very short article, but i believe the quote summed it up.

"steep decline in demand for console games"

Have they not seen recent Halo and Black Ops sales?

I'm really sick of this statement...

There is nothing inherently wrong with consoles. It's the industry it self. They're mining gamers and consoles happen to be the richest vein.
And no, I don't even play consoles at all.

Hopefully they get looked after under a new developer. Never good to hear when these guys and girls get laid off.

The reason you get half the games you see now on PC is because of Consoles.

A bad game didn't sell well so they blame the platform?
post #9 of 22
So companies wont make PC games because of "steep decline" and "rampant piracy", and now that their supposed AAA quality titles are still sucking they wont make games for consoles because of "steep decline of demand".

Maybe companies should think about why no one likes their games rather than blame everyone else for not wanting their ****.

I keep thinking we're going to hit another video game crash, with the amount of generic high-budget low-quality titles that are pumped onto the market... but as P.T. Barnum once stated "there is a sucker born every minute". However, there are always people out there ready to buy Battlefield 4: Premium Extreme Edition or Call of Duty 29: Blackest of Operations, so it might not happen and developers will carry on their merry way cashing in on junk.
