    2K has lost it's president Christoph Hartmann after a 20 year run with Take-Two and laying the foundation of 2K as a company in 2005. Take-Two hasn't announced a successor yet, and is downplaying that this having an affect on future titles in development. I wonder if duds like Battleborn and Evolve drove him out? Or does he just need a change of scenery and following the path of the Half Life writers that have all left Valve?

    "We can confirm that there has been a management change at the leadership level of 2K," said Alan Lewis, VP of corporate communications and public affairs at Take-Two. "For more than a decade, Christoph Hartmann has helped 2K to become an industry leader and we are grateful for his contributions and wish him well on his future endeavors. This change in leadership will have no impact on 2K's current pipeline of titles in development, and we look forward to this new chapter in the history of our label."

    I honestly feel that they had a really strong run up until the last few years, but how many other studios can we say that about?
