Shareholders, devs, management, potted plants for the lobby, the people who paint the lines on the parking lots, inspirational posters... y'know. That kinda stuff.

Friendly reminder from the last quarterly PW conference call.

85% Gross profit.

Gross is after the Cost of Goods stuff is paid for. That I would think would be anything connected to the actual game. Like the servers, bandwidth, the dev team, licensing, etc.

Probably less of a profit than their other games though considering that this one is not custom and has to be licensed.

Are you serious, 85-fricking-%?!

You hear that sound devs? That was the sound of your credibility gurgling loudly down the ****ter. In what universe is it justifiable to claim story content is too expensive in a game that's sitting on an 85-******n-% profit margin? There are companies out there that would literally murder people to get that kind of a return.
