Fears that we’re seeing the reprisal of EA hegemony that steamrolled studios like Bullfrog and Westwood are apparently greatly exaggerated. It turns out that the recent missteps of one of the most celebrated studios in the industry, the Hallowed Redeemer of the Western RPG if you will, have been self-inflicted, at least according to co-founder Greg Zeschuck.
“We’re not being forced to do anything or told to do anything. We make the decisions. We take input. It’s just funny when people say that, because it’s not actually remotely true. At the end of the day, we’re responsible for the quality of the content and games we release, and we’re committed to try and always take feedback really seriously from our fans and be humble about how we take it – use it to make the next games better,” Ray Muzyka chimed in. “You’re only as good as your next game, and that’s the way we’ve always felt.” We assume he meant “last game” there. Either that, or we just found the explanation for Dragon Age 2.
