Replaced by what? When Resident Evil is gone a third class eastern european dev can simply fill the void with their cheap RE knock off?

You have something against East Europian devs?

^ I dont agree with this.

Gameing would be worse off without a Sony or Nintendo.

Someone would fill the space...I've seen many publishers and devs go down, some of my favourite ones actually, and eventually someone filled those spots again.

I'm just looking at my Switch third party titles and I have both Puyo Puyo Tetris and Valkyria Chronicles 4, both of which are awesome games.  I will likely get Sonic Mania at some point too.  Sega may not be first party anymore but they still have some of that original first party mojo left in them.

(For all the people looking for "developers" instead of pushlishers, then consider my answer "Sonic Team".)

I said Square Enix, but Sega is right behind them for me. Right now my largest number of third party titles on either Switch or PS4 came from Sega, including VC4 and PPT, and one of my most anticipated games of next year is Project Sakura Wars. Plus, there's also the fact that they now own Atlus and its portfolio of titles.

Can you imagine the sudden chaos in the gaming world if GTAs would suddenly stop being made?

There hasnt been made one for quite a while and the gaming world is still turning

Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

I'd go with Capcom, since they've provided me with some good survival horror titles over the years.

Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see

So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"

For me personally... Square Enix, no contest.

Capcom? Also Respawn.

My favorite dev is gone (Visceral Games) with no noteworthy dev taking their place.



Respawn, some of the Ubisoft studios, come to mind. For me personally, the biggest loss would be Bungie, as I am a Destiny fan.

CDPR would be significant as well, considering that they're responsible for one of the best games of this gen, and have probably the most hotly anticipated game slated to come out next year. The Witcher is now a hot property, and expectations for the next TW game will be huge. It would suck if that game, or Cyperpunk (after all this waiting) didn't happen.
