They've tried to launch a lot
of new franchises over the years and very few of them were successful.
You got stuff like Blinx, Perfect Dark Z, Sudeki, Shadowrun, Tao Feng, Ninety-nine Nights, Kameo, etc, etc. Just a whole bunch titles ranging from mediocre to intensely awful. They just don't have more than one or two talented development teams on their payroll.
Their new thing seems to be to focus mostly on third-party and then try and negotiate some small form of exclusive content.
