If you expand such tendencies towards the gaming industry, which would require much larger teams of people and more complex products on top of longer turnaround times from concept-to-product, 5-10 years before something comes out or even gets announced publicly isn't out of the realm of ordinary. If you consider a company like Blizz with an already-established pipeline, funding, workforce, etc., their turn-around time for a new concept-to-market IP is likely 4-5 years (assuming nothing goes wrong)... not having all that pre-established infrastructure and funding in place just makes the process take longer.
    Re: Bonfire Studios

    Agreed but after a number of years there hasn't been even so much as an announcement (or a direction). There's more on their site about the Bonfire Book Club than there is about what they're doing. See for yourself.

    Depends on how strong their venture funding is. In most cases you don't have all that long to fool around and blue-sky projects.

    Yeah, if current employees were primarily guild members in WoW, this is a textbook example of hiring 'bros'. We'll see if it works out. It's a little-bit tone deaf. There was another game studio that opened recently—the name escapes me—and their picture that went along with their 'Hello World' announcement had them all standing on a flight of stairs. All white, all male. I mean if it works for them that's really what matters but it's going to be noticed.

    I'd MUCH prefer the duo: brand new studio and an actual game to play.

    I don't get the excitement for these sorts of announcements. Holla at me when youou actually have a product for me (and it's not a damn board game...)

    Hehe, I was reading an article about this today, the main focus of the article was the fact that no woman except the dog is part of the team

    Notice what? only people like you seem to see problems here, what does the colour or gender of the team matter so much?

    Which is the worrying and scary part.
    If it was a big studio with hundreds of members you can probably ask why there aren't any women. A small studio created with people he know? Not so much.

    I've worked in a small studio with 3 people I knew. No woman...wonder if that was problematic as well.

    In the end as long as people obsess with gender first we will have a society that still have gender issues. All of this is detrimental to equality. It only makes people sick of it when others try to find problems at number one priority instead of maybe thinking that a group of 11 people is probably a group of closer friends or colleagues. And sometimes people just don't know many people of X gender.

    Even then, they are searching for more so who's to say they won't hire a woman? This is just an example of creating drama for the sake of it.

    What part of if it works for them did you not understand? Nonetheless, it's acknowledged that the white male business in game studios is an industry-wide thing and people are paying attention to that so it's gonna be noticed. That's just a fact.

    Here is the problem, people pay attention to that, that should be something that does not matter
