Codies, Please don't sell to Take Two


Recommended Posts

https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/codemasters-confirms-its-in-talks-with-take-two-over-a-possible-sale/

Of all the companies you could sell the series rights to, Take Two and EA are the worst of the worst. Take Two especially has been taking the p*** recently with their horrendous consumer unfriendly practices. Full priced games with unskippable ads, bugged releases that don't get fixed, zero effort copy/pastes of entire games (Switch version of NBA 2K21 is literally just a copy/paste of 2K20, which itself was a copy/paste of 2K19). Selling the F1 series to Take Two will kill the franchise, I'm sure of it. They don't care about making good video games, they just want us to empty our pockets.

omg yeah just saw the news surprised the hell out of me although i don't think it it's as much as codemasters giving the licence rather than take 2 literally buying codemasters so be like when codemasters brought slightly mad studios

Codies isnt selling the series, codemasters and the studios they own is what is being potentially bought so codemasters will still be making all the games they do now 

Yeah, I misunderstood the article a little, but the sentiment stands.

Take two have probably just seen the increase in racing games being played due to lockdown and thought "we'll have some of that". I'm hoping that should the takeover happen, codies will remain to function as it does but maybe with an increased budget, allowing them to polish the game more effectively in the 'short' time frame between iterations. Also, maybe some investment in the AI would be good... Let me dream ok 😂

Take Two make some great games, look at how much value for money GTA5 has been, so did CM... years ago!

Currently CM isnt much better than EA in my opinion, My friends and I fell foul of the Grid 2019 money grab and looks like Dirt 5 is on a par to that!

Hopefully T2 wil purge some of the management and give us the games we deserve!

It's hard to get a read on T2, on one hand they allow Rockstar this long leash where they work on their franchises for years(and it pays off).

On another hand they are really predatory with their sports games...

 

F1 2020 has a lot more customization and microtransactions than previous games, that might have caught T2 eyes... Expect it to get a lot worst if the take over is completed.

Well, it was nice to enjoy the F1 games while it lasted, but soon enough, we're gonna go down the same route that happened to the NBA, NFL and WWE games.

 

You really disappoint me Codies. You have betrayed every single person who has ever bought one of your games.
