Microsoft Bloodwake was amazing, Another Microsoft IP I liked Bruteforce even though Phil Spencer loathes it. Haven't heard of Wreckless or my brain just can't remember it sounds like a derby game?

Absolutely. I was livid with Microsoft when they announced the closure of these studios too.

I wonder if they would have made the same choice considering their investment in studios now?
