Reading the comments, it appears that there are people really wanting a new KQ game. Every person who contributes is hopefully one step closer to a release.

Not that it hurts to move now, but even if Activision is impossible, it might be possible another chance will open up in the future.

Mind if I inquire to the details of that transaction? Was that based purely on the value of the IP at the time, or was it more to do with the sale of the company itself? I always assumed it was the latter.
Quote from: Erpy on April 02, 2010, 06:33:50 PMI don't know the details myself, though obviously that sum was for the company itself. I have no idea how much of it was the solid stuff like the office building and interior and how much was the intellectual property, distribution rights and goodwill associated with the IP. Ken himself might have a better idea.That said, now you're here anyway, would you be adverse to clarifying whether the Joystiq article was talking about a commercial license or actual franchises? The article itself has conflicting parts about that.
