I doubt that I big company like Fox would sell their video games division to some bankrupt companty, they are not that stupid. And how would a bankrupt company be able to afford Fox Interactive?

They have bought fox interactive, but they are not nearly bankrupt, this is merely a nasty rumour!!   :mad: the fat green blob above me is correct in saying that fox would not sell to a company going under, as this would disadvantage them

Doesn't hurt my chances of getting the game, as SCi are publishing it in Europe :P

Both "No One Lives Forever" and NOLF2 were published by Fox Interactive, and I like to think those were pretty good games.  ;)

NOLF 1 was just a really fun FPS, and I'd imagine 2 was the samme. I don't mean the "just" in a bad way, very refreshing  :D

okay, never played these games, but i think they did publish some sort of interactive X-Files Episode. That Game had 10(!) CD-ROMs.
Also, their Game Engine looks kinda bad.
