    I'm appalled they talked to Goldman Sachs.

    I hope we get a fps gi joe game, I think gaming is the only way they can appeal the gi joe brand to a modern audience.
    I'm interested to see what they do with the tf brand whatever it is i just hope it isn't a mobile game.

    There is a AAA third-person shooter/action adventure G.I. Joe game coming.

    Cocks mentioned that the toy giant is looking to ‘right-size’ their entertainment effort.

    They just want to make a bunch of mobile gambling simulators. That’s where the easy money is. Very little good will come from this.

    Yeah, anything that comes from this push will just be cheap-to-make garbage, usually filled with microtransactions.

    How about you give the license to an actual studio instead of these garbage quick cash grabs we've been getting. It's been nearly a decade since our last actual TF game.

    The mention of mobile games makes me think of those P2W strategy city builder games

    Studios don't want to make licensed games anymore. Game development is so expensive nowadays, they want to work on assets that they own.

    What does ‘driving out costs’ actually mean in proper English? My worthless corporate c***-speak is a little rusty.

    Transformers: Battlegrounds came out in late 2020.

    I hope Chris Cocks gets fired before he completely soils this company and its brands.

    We have EA making multiple licensed games atm from Star Wars to marvel games, as well as another studio making a Ninja Turtle Ronin game. Large-budget licensed games are still around.

    You also have the other side like WB games where the IP holder makes their own studio division and makes high budget games of their own IP’s. No longer have the excuse of not owning it at that point.
    Again, nearly a decade since our last real TF game.

    Mystery of Convoy HD remake confirmed?

    Yeah with the way the words are phrased, I'm getting bad vibes, especially with "Digital games" instead of "video games". Getting the feeling we'll be getting even more mobile games and equivalents with a shitton of "pay money to earn levels" for a long time. Maybe this is why you don't give former Xbox bigwigs control over a toy company?
    Goddamn the jokes write themselves
