welp guess they have no interest of making their own studios. Just throw that MS money at a lack of studio problem. Why not when you have it, i guess.money doesn't fix everything. for instance,.. i'll bet that gears 5 trailer cost them a lot of money. ..and fans.
money doesn't fix everything. for instance,.. i'll bet that gears 5 trailer cost them a lot of money. ..and fans.oh yeah for sure. I'd rather them cultivate a new studio from the ground up than just throw money at every single problem to buy up studios.
