If Bungie and IO Interactive can do it, surely others can?

    For me it's obviously the Bioware one. But most of the talent behind both games have jumped ship, so if such a thing happened, maybe they would come back? It's not at all likely, but dreams man, dreams.

    But the Ghost Story Games one would be good too.

    Rare from Microsoft...
    Hope for the best but expect the worst.

    Respawn, because I loved both titanfall 1 and 2. They were the best shooters in years to me. Titanfall 2 was the complete package, having a awesome campaign and a brilliant multiplayer experience. Titanfall 2 was killed by EA because they sandwiched it between cod and battlefield in order to hurt cods sales. It deserved better than that, Respawn deserves better than that. On their own, I feel a Titanfall 3 could be a GOTY contender, but EA are determined to destroy yet another talented and hard working studio.

    Respawn. I can see them being pretty close to the chopping block. Titanfall 2 was a great game but it didn't seem to sell that well and we know what EA does to studios who games don't sell well... I think DICE and Bioware are probably safe due to them putting out the biggest non-sports games for EA.

    Bioware, no contest. Then I could stop worrying that EA is going to close them

    Never gonna happen but dream scenario would be Bethesda realizing they want to focus on TES, and divest themselves of the Fallout franchise back to Obsidian.
    I better not be wishing Obsidian splits away from Microsoft in years to come.

    Let's hope The Outer Worlds turns out to be an absolute hit. toast

    LOL, nearly half the options are for EA. :P

    I went for Monolith Soft, though. Xenoblade 2 is literally the only reason I even want a Switch, although there no doubt are a fair few great games on it now, just getting to the stage where it all feels so damn samey with their main games and I could pass up on it...if not for Xenoblade 2. laugh

    But yeah, Xenoblade trilogy with Plats, there are so many achievements in those games, it's like they don't want to be attached to Nintendo or something. :P

    I would've picked Rare...but considering a chunk of their staff are with PlayTonic now, it's too late for them, I think.

    I'm glad you voted for Xenoblade, as I'd mainly put that in there in a desperate attempt to avoid another EA entry laugh

    My answer still is and always will be for Disney to give up the damn LucasArts IPs :'(

    Crystal Dynamics would never have had Tomb Raider if it had stayed with its original devs.

    I personally like where Tomb Raider is at the moment

    LucadArts breaking free would be great.

    I actually chose Rare. One of the reason I switched over to the PS4 is for the exclusives. I feel Microsoft only cares about backwards compatibility and I prefer to move forward in the gaming industry. Just my opinion.

    I voted Monolith Soft so they can bring the next Xenoblade game to Playstation!

    How about Turn10 so they can bring the Forza Horizon games over? headspin

    Voted for DICE because I personally have always loved the realism and gameplay of Battlefield. Not only online but the story as well. To get rid of EA and the online credit system would be great.

    I'd rather Crystal Dynamics took Legacy of Kain with them, but Respawn got my vote. Square Enix won't fire CD staff if a game doens't perform well.
