Question Lost Planet 3

Lost Planet 3 confirmed: Capcom makes controversial developer switch.

Lost Planet 3's been confirmed by a trailer that appeared, and has since been pulled, from YouTube.

Quote:
Controversially, the trailer named Spark Unlimited, the studio responsible for mediocre shooter Legendary: The Box, as the developer in charge of the series' latest instalment.
The all-CGI footage showed a new protagonist being pursued by alien beasts on an icy planet. The wise-cracking hero then boarded a giant mech before grappling with an even bigger monster in a snowy showdown.

The video confirmed the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sequel will release in "early 2013".

Spark Unlimited is based in California and worked on Call of Duty spin-off Finest Hour for Xbox, GameCube and PS2.

The developer later created first-person shooters Turning Point: Fall of Liberty for Codemasters and fellow shooter Legendary: The Box, both of which were released in 2008 and received middling review scores.

The studio was rumoured to be working on Star Wars: Battlefront 3 earlier this year.

Who's impressed/unimpressed by this news then?

Capcom never seizes to amaze me. The whole idea behind them subbing out their games to western studios is to make a game that appeals to the west. How in the hell they thought it'd be a good idea to pick a developer who has yet to even make a single decent game to us Westerners (by majority I'm sure some people enjoyed Turning Point and Legendary) this generation is mind blowing.

What's funny. Just the night before this all came out my friend and I were having a discussion about the original and began speculating if we'd ever see another LP... we figured with LP2 doing as poorly as it did, despite being an awesome game, was the nail in the coffin for the series. Looks like we were wrong and since spark is doing it, possibly right too-.-'
