Gotham Games gone

Take-Two subdivision "phased out" by publisher's internal reorganization.


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.



That's too bad. I liked the desert storm series. And I'm probably the only person who will ever comment on this news. This is the first time I've ever commented first.
