It just baffles me that they spend millions on developing a game, like Battlefront 3 and 1313, and then when it's 90% done they just shitcan the whole thing. Why not spent a million or two more to finish the game, release it, and actually make some of your money back???
I suppose that in decisions like this, the idea is that the money you save by downsizing and consolidating outweighs the money you lose by cancelling projects. Although I agree that does seem rather shortsighted. It wouldn't be the first time corporate beancounters favored a quick profit over a long-term investment.
