And another one down

HBS has been acquired by Paradox. Not really liking this trend I'm seeing of great indie studios getting snapped up.

Triumph was also bought out by Paradox recently.

Lets hope Paradox doesn't turn into EA then...

...Are you old enough to remember the era when EA were actually the good guys as far as publishing companies went?

No doubt. It just feels like these indie studios who proved that they can stand on their own are all now just throwing in with the enemy they fought so valiantly to be independent from.

And yes rabbit, I do remember those days. I also remember how quickly they transitioned into something else. The price of success I guess. And greedy shareholders...

have you looked at the credits for Battletech? That was no "indy" studio in the modern sense of the word. :lol:
