Gotham Games, the publisher of The Great Escape and the Conflict: Desert Storm series, has ceased to exist. "We have phased out Gotham Games as a publishing label," said Jeffrey Lapin, CEO of Gotham's parent, Take-Two Interactive, in a conference call yesterday.
Gotham's elimination was part of a larger internal re-organization at Take-Two. As part of the re-org, Rockstar Games will remain Take 2's "source of premium content," PC-centric Gathering will further expand into "mid-range" console titles, and Global Star Software will remain the company's budget-priced publishing arm. In the future, current titles that bear the Gotham logo will be distributed by Gathering or Global Star "depending on the price point," said Lapin.
