If they were focused on making a new IP they wouldn't have bought Destiny from Activision. Depending on their resources they could potentially start work on a new IP after getting far enough into development on Destiny 3.

Also, while the playerbase has certainly shrunk over the years, it's still more than large enough that there would be signifigant backlash for leaving the Destiny series to start something else.

They can still work on a Destiny 3 since the IP is a good safety net to have around for them.

Just feel they might be better off releasing a new IP first and then go back to Destiny afterwards since that would be easier to build up the good will they've lost over the years than having to pin everything on Destiny 3 needing to be a huge success.

In terms of money, they lose out on Activision's money vault but still have another wealthy partner around who gave them a huge sum of money last year for a new project.

I think whether they make it now, or wait a few years, Destiny 3 has to knock it out of the park. Might as well make it now while they still have a strong fanbase thats going to throw down the cash regardless.

Gearbox currently dealing with two lawsuits involving their CEO and former company attorney. Mostly regarding allegations of skimming money from the company and illegal contract breaches but also one really damaging allegation assuming its true.

As discovered by Kotaku, Gearbox originally filed a lawsuit against Callender in November 2018 for misusing company funds. It's said that Callender borrowed money from the company for a home loan and tuition that wasn't fully paid back. Further, Callender is accused of abusing a Gearbox company credit card for personal expenses such as "family vacations, gun club memberships and firearms accessories, and trying to get six-pack abs."

According to Callender, that money should have rightfully been paid out to Gearbox employees and to help fund the development of the next Borderlands game.

However, things take a dark twist. Callender also states that Pitchford accidentally forgot a USB drive at a Dallas-area Medieval Times restaurant in 2014. Callender alleges that the USB drive contained both highly-sensitive business documents and "underage pornography." Pitchford was supposedly in San Francisco at the time the drive was recovered, and Callender -- without yet knowing the contents of the drive -- directed Gearbox staff to duplicate the files so they could be sent to Pitchford. Pitchford allegedly intervened and ordered the duplicate files to be immediately destroyed. Callender goes on to also accuse Pitchford of using Gearbox company funds to throw personal parties at his house where older men would expose themselves to minors.
Making things a bit more interesting is the voice actor for Claptrap from the Borderlands series recently went public about the allegations but kept it ambiguous enough on which allegations were true or if they all are.

Apparently Bethesda found another way to mess up things with Fallout 76.

This time it involves a developer-only room somehow being accessible in the PC version of the game. Can't access it through normal means which is why Bethesda has been handing out bans and threats of bans to anyone who enters the location. Even Bethesda's handling with the bannings and patches to fix it created new issues with the game.

Being speculated this happened because Bethesda might have just reused coding for Fallout 4's dev room without making serious tweaks or rewrites to handle an online-only game.

According to a report from Kotaku, EA is rumored to have canceled their unannounced open-world Star Wars game. Seems its due to a mix of the game's troubled dev history, plans not staying on track, and EA getting upset at how long it was taking.

The project, originally known as "Ragtag", then bounced around various teams, directors and re-designs. Conceived by Visceral as a single-player action-adventure, EA wanted to mold Ragtag - completely rebooted by EA Vancouver as "Orca" - into a large-scale open-world game. Kotaku's report suggests that Orca had become so ambitious, that EA's head honchos finally brought the hammer down, wanting a conceptually simpler title that can be pushed out to the public much sooner.

Disney needs to step in and either give EA a boot in the ass or just pull the rights.

BioWare is doing fine (I think) with The Old Republic these days, so leave them alone.
