As for hardware, March brought about the following results:
Is this one of the first cases of a title selling almost a million, 700K, and then a publisher firing that developer?
I know Eidos was not happy with Tomb Raider selling over a million soon after release.
Ensemble was closed before Halo Wars even released. One of the spin-off studios, Robot, is developing additional Halo Wars content.
