I have to wonder if they'd continued the RF series better with something more akin to a modernized version of Guerrilla, and not canned the series altogether, they'd have survived this better.
RF and Metro are really the only games they make that I like. This is not a big enough outfit to weather dropping one of their most popular series after ending it with a pretty bad installment in Armageddon.
It's a lack of rational priorities like this that can do in some pub/dev teams. I have to wonder if Codemasters is headed the same direction. They've put off making a sequel of one of their most popular games (GRID) for years in favor of cranking out one crap title after another in the F1, Flashpoint and DiRT franchises. Eventually that takes a toll on you.
