2K Boston technical chap Christopher Kline has discussed with his concerns over the perils of the increasingly precarious mid-budget development market.

"I think what we realised... [when] we were doing games that I'd say were mid-budget - maybe $3-4 million, [was that] there was no real market left," he said.

"You'd have to do something like what EA is doing and go into the casual market, or you've got to go for a really big blockbuster - just because of the economics, especially for the small independent developers, you're really squeezed out of the middle."
