Arkane: We'll move on from EA project cuts
GamesIndustry.biz interviewed Raphael Colantonio during last week's Game Connection in Lyon about the loss of the EA project:
"We're moving on," said CEO and creative director Raphael Colantonio. "We do have some reserves, some cash that allows us to wait for a while, to find deals and reassign staff. But the right deals - that's really important, to keep the vision of what our objective is as a company, and what our identity is."
"To some degree, although it sounds like a bit of a paradox, all these publishers cutting things right now - I think it will eventually benefit the independent developers."
"Those companies will be looking for projects, and if they're looking, rightly, to lower their costs it makes sense to work with independent companies - they're always cheaper than anything they can produce internally."
