The company has been broken up and bought up by different publishers. Sega bought Relic Entertainment(Company of Heroes, Dawn of War, Homeworld), Koch Media bought Volition (Saints Row, Red Faction) and Crytek bought Homefront. Ubisoft bought the Obsidian developed South Park RPG. Interestingly, no one wanted to buy Vigil (Darksiders).
I'm not sure I like that Sega got Relic. As I'm sure I've mentioned before, Relic is my favourite currently active developer. I never got the impression from Sega that they are much into competitive e-sports and supporting their titles for a long time after release. I don't want there to be a yearly DoW title like they are producing Total War games, each with slightly altered settings but otherwise barely any improvements. Though I'm not even sure they got the Warhammer licence along with the purchase, so there might not be a new Dawn of War in any case.
Sadly, this sale could also mean that Company of Heroes 2 gets delayed by quite a bit.
The game seems to be generally done and is already in beta testing (sadly I didn't get a spot yet), but I'm sure it'll take time to get integrated into Sega's testing and distribution procedures.
It's also interesting that no one even wanted Vigil. I guess Darksiders 2 must have really bombed HARD. Are the two game's stories complete? I read that the second game tells the same story as the first one, only from another perspective. I wonder if they had planned for 2 more titles and if there are huge gaps in the storylines because of that. If so I guess I can cross those off my "to play"-list...
Also Atari is also dead for good. But before you get all nostalgic, the company was Atari in name only, the classic Atari died quite a long time ago. What is dying now are what used to go by Infrogames in the old days. I'm sad to say that they deserve to be bankrupt with how hard they wasted the Star Trek licence when they had it and especially how they let STO vegetate along while they had the reigns. Good riddance.
