[Kotaku] Next Saints Row, Metro Games Will Be “Faithful To Their Franchises”, Say New Owners - Page 4

The game is probably already near completion anyways. If they decided to put a new team on to finish it, they might as well just kill it where it is....

OT, Im glad that it wasn't EA/Activision/Ubisoft that bought 4A/Metro

Edit: just looked further at the link in the source, it says Koch Bought "metro" not 4A, so i think that means they just bought publishing rights and 4A is still an independent studio

So you don't buy Toyota because they have had issues with the gas pedal on some specific models, and you don't buy Gigabyte because there were some cold boot issues on their early P67 motherboards, and you don't buy Intel because their was a reliability fault in their B2 stepping Sandy Bridge chipsets, ...

SR2 was meh. SR3 was one of the most entertaining games I've ever played. The writing was stellar. Totally unexpected.

Buying saints row and metro was an excellent decision. Both are going to make a lot of money if they aren't executed poorly.

I played sr2 and sr3 and preferred the game world in saints row 2 but enjoyed the gameplay more in saints row 3.saints row 2 has some really nice buildings and architecture.

I think I would have liked SR2 more if I had played it first. It had a lot of the same charm. I just couldn't deal with the way the main character in sr2 walked, heh. edit-typo

The Koch business empire has a rep for actively supporting conservative social issues, probably more so than any company in the u.s. That may not have an effect on the franchise, but it's enough to get a raised eyebrow from me.

After the entire Dead Island debacle I'll take anything Koch Media says with a serious grain of salt. Any games they release will have to be proven to the core by online reviewers before I'll even consider buying them. Hopefully they'll do well, but I have my doubts.

Wrong Koch. Koch Media is a company based out of Germany. They have no affiliation with the other Koch.
