Doesn't Steve Danuser still write WoW's "Story"?

Lead devs write the story then hand it over to the writers and go "this is the plot, polish it up for us"

In brighter news, noted racist, LGBTQphobic, fascist-funding, war crimes denier (and occasional Dragon Quest composer) Koichi Sugiyama finally died.

I would imagine that the board is a carefully cultivated group of yes-men and empty suits that exists solely to rubber stamp whatever Kotick orders.

Why bother putting in effort when you have a total monopoly on the license/sport? :capitalism: Gridiron football has little appeal outside of the USA so the biggest alternative is the Canadian Football League which currently has nine teams. Then you are down to the joke leagues: The XFL and other wannabes who can only get one or two games into a season before shutting down.

There is college football but that still has issues to work out before games can be made again.

Just do what devs did in the 8-/16-bit era, and make names up:

Bonus if you make them just different enough from real players to avoid legal complications.

What gets me is that they had a neat setting with cool characters that they could do stories with, then eventually...let those stories peter out, and threw their hands up and stopped doing them.

It sort of feels like they never really knew what to do with Overwatch, beyond it being salvaged from Project Titan.

I mean, they hurriedly dumped their original story plans shortly after launch (including cancelling a basically-complete comic series) because everything the fans were coming up with was better than what they had themselves, and they somehow realised that.
