It's pretty likely they just forgot to renew the site. Sony once forgot to renew the Trademark for The Last Guardian and everyone was worried it got canned until Sony confirmed it was accidental.

Besides, a purchase that monumental (in terms of cash spent, not hype generated) would be out by now. Sony and Activision have shareholders to inform and financial statements they need to produce each quarter.

They could have possibly asked them to make it discrete, but I see what you mean.

It's very unlikely both companies could agree to hide something like this entirely from their shareholders. There would be hyping at the very least, on both ends.

I meant ask the shareholders to keep it discrete.

Yeah, I get that, but there would've been a conference call to ask such. A public conference call. The pieces don't add up from a financial standpoint unless the purchase is ongoing.

It was probably discussed in a 'business meeting' which are private.

It "probably" wasn't discussed at all. I don't see why Sony would NOW buy a dead, nevergonnaworkagain IP, five years AFTER their crossover game needed him. The only reason he'd be bought would be for PSAS and I doubt theyre gonna put a budget into PSAS 2 anytime soon.

1. Dead from not being used and can be revived, because the popularity is there.

2. I don't care about the crossover because, Super Bot didn't focus on making the game.  They focused on getting character which is why there was so many leaks and why the game was so bad when it came out.  It has taken a year to fix the mess that, Super Bot has made so unless they're making a sequel or more DLC.  I don't care about the crossover.

If it has popularity, then the previous ten games would've sold.

Thread topic is resolved, thread is locked.
