What studios did MS destroy may I ask?

I mean Turn 10 is in such shambles its a disgrace..

Rare still exists after all there internal issues.

Bungie were amazing under MS.

You must mean Lion Head Studios who haven't made a good game in 20 years?

Or do you mean Ensemble Studios, who were merged internally within MS?

I am curious on your answers.

EA and Activison would be more correct.

Sony and Activision killed a fair number of studios as well. 



Anthem won't flop.



They announced a new Dragon Age at The Game Awards, if that underperforms too than I would say it's likely.

But honestly we should wait and see how Anthem performs, I know that the initial reception isn't very positive but that doesn't always translate to poor sales.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

EA is all about games as a service. Dragon Age will never see the light of day.

Biowaree employees reportedly felt like their entire future hinged on Anthem:

  1. After a huge miss with Mass Effect Andromeda, BioWare has a lot riding on the success of Anthem, and it could dictate the entire future of the studio, one way or another

So a lot of eyes are now on EA and Bioware to see how things turn out.



Let me tell you my opinion with a song :

Digital Anvil, Ensemble Studios, FASA Studios, Press Play, Lionhead...

RARE i not the same developer it used to be.

I think the biggest losses for me personally as a PC gamer has actually been Digital Anvil followed by Ensemble Studios, they both made some of my favorite games of all time.



I see the future Dragon Age being their last bastion for having a strong future as a company so here's hoping it delivers.

I do not know if it is true but EA's influence seems to have very negative effects on these developers,restricting creative freedom and forcing short term financial gains upon games that ultimately destroys all goodwill consumers have with them.

Well we all know Rare's falling was not due to MS so that shouldn't be used as a MS fault.

As for Digital Anvil, FASA Studios and Press Play, I cant say I know what they made. Press Play sounds familiar.
