    Then you can kindly fuck off back to your blog. You don't get to lord your "information" over everyone as if you're Jason Schierer and then blast people with "it's on need to know information, and you don't need to know" when people dare to ask you about things you said in the forum thread you posted in.
     
     
    No one here is impressed with the guy who talks just to insist that he knows something others don't like he's fifteen years old on the playground (with about as much accuracy); just like they weren't impressed with it on ResetEra when they starting banning you for it.
     
     
     
     
    Not to be confused with that amusing time around, like... 2003-ish, where stuff about Sonic games leaked in advance because someone would upload the entire damn game onto the internet.

    It doesn't go without saying, no. Everything that has come out about Mania has painted the picture that he was significantly more involved with that than he was with Forces and basically acted as the liaison for the Mania team for pretty much everything and kept Sega off their backs, even though he's barely credited in the former and listed as a producer in the latter.
     
     
    This is exactly the case. I've been here long enough to remember when people were laying the blame of 06 a his feet; the final ultimate proof that the series under his stewardship had stagnated and the type of games he was making were played out and it was time for a change both at the top and conceptually.
    06 being a game made at another studio in another country on the other side of the world from the things Iizuka was working on at the time.
     
     
     
     
    Iizuka has made some laughably dumb gaffes (primarily in the Sonic 4 era), but I think it's dramatically underappreciated that he's the only one left of Sonic Team who is willing to put up with Sega and act as a buffer between them and whatever the series does next; and I would be extremely shocked if all the stupid mandates shit and baffling marketing decisions and poor development allocation couldn't be laid entirely at the feet of some middle management idiot at Sega of Japan and Iizuka is the guy Sega trots out to take all the heat for things.

    Or they're simply noting the fact that Iizuka was heavily involved with Mania and the decisions surrounding its scope and design and working as a middleman for that team and Sega (even if he wasn't doing the work himself); and he wasn't heavily involved with Sonic Forces since he's been primarily been working in the US on behalf of Sega of America (in a role similar to what Naka was originally lured there for in 1992) since well before Forces came out while Sonic Forces was made in Japan under primarily Nakamura's eye.
     
     
    Iizuka has gotten plenty of deserved shit for the creative decisions on the series entries he was directly involved with where heaping ones on him that he was only tangentially related to (it seems like the main idea he had for Forces was the Avatar system) is unnecessary.

    In any case, it's always amusing when companies put out PR statements about something that, due to the context and company in question, no one even remotely believes isn't just a baldfaced lie just to save face. 
     
     
     
    Like when Zuckerberg or whatever trots out and says "We at Facebook care about you, the individual user" and everyone reads it and makes a jerkoff motion with their hand.

    No, I act like Activision taking talented development teams fresh off of working on interesting and varied IPs that were successful in their own right, rewarding them for their success by dumping them into an anonymous support role for yearly Call of Duty titles since that's where their talents will be the most profitable, then shitcanning half the staff/shutting the studio down entirely at the slightest sign of financial benefit (since the studio doesn't need to be as large or creatively focused if it's just making stuff for CoD), is something that Activision has done for over a decade now; and if Toys for Bob somehow breaks up the streak started by Raven Software, Treyarch, and Neversoft (or the Infinity Ward collapse following MW2) it would be basically unprecedented.
     
    In fact, it's a particularly odd rebuttal for you to try and make when Activision also just did the same fucking thing with Vicarious Visions just a few months ago immediately after THPS 1+2 released to it's own high acclaim and sales success (so Tracer's ass can be more perfectly rendered in Overwatch DLC, presumably); to say nothing of the reports following this that Toys For Bob has already had a massive brain drain very recently, likely not being a coincidence that it happened in lockstep with this repositioning as a support developer.
