    That's not surprising at all, I expected EA to grab WWE, considering the fact that the milk the hell out of yearly sports games anyway.

    On a side note, i'm looking forward to seeing how Saint's Row and Homefront turn out in the future. But i will say that Homefront does need more than a new game engine to make it a better game/series.

    It looks like Vigil wasn't picked up by Take Two after all. Damn, I was really hoping to see more Darksiders. Maybe someone else will step in and take Vigil...

    yeah i was expecting WWE to be part of EA Sports. Makes sense with all the yearly sports games they have and even more money for them.

    Edit: Looks like Take Two is getting the WWE license

    That is all the Homefront franchise is worth? Most games piss that away on ad budgets. Odds are that it's going to need an entire revamp or it's just going to sit for a long time, since it doesn't sound all that profitable.

    WWE Video Game License to be Acquired by Take Two - IGN
    Glad to see EA doesn't advance in it's quest to create a monopoly on sports games. I'm kinda glad EA didn't get the rights to the WWE license. No game franchise should have to endure that.

    Phew! Glad EA isn't getting WWE. I thought for sure they would have picked it up. It fits their bill for milking annually with little work and updates.

    Huh? You like Platinum Games but they just don't deliver on their games.

    That's like saying is your grilled cheese sandwiches are your favorite food because you hate cheese.

    I'm pretty sure they're all the same developers, but different publishers.

    The developer of Homefront bought Homefront.

    Sad to see THQ go, they've made a lot of great games, but one tablet cost them their company.

    Their games such as Madworld, Vanquish and Anarchy Reigns failed to live up to their expectations and Bayonetta on the PS3 was a insult on how bad the port was.

    EDIT: Forgot to add Infinite Space to the list, seriously if you ask any gamer that game they will be confused as much as the next guy.

    Yeah i know Crytek are making the 2nd Homefront. But still... THQ built a massive company and some good series and now other companies are gonna get the profits.

    IF THQ waited till the end of 2013 they would've been fine. South Park, Saints Row 4 and Metro would've sold like crazy.
