    "Microsoft Sells License to FS Franchise" Part 2

    Something I can speak authoritatively on is E3. Having covered it and presented at it at various times over the past 15 years or so. E3 is one of the worst possibe places for a small or niche player to make any sort of announcement. It's like a mouse trying to scream in a fully spun up wind tunnel. if it's not for consoles or the next major PC based mass appeal franchise and you aren't looking for multi-million dollar purchase orders from major game retailers (by the way, this is E3s real purpse, it's a retail trade show for purchasing agents), then the last place on earth you want to try and make any 'noise' in the industry is E3. Some companies make a point of going dark during this week and the week following so they can get outside the sound blast and make their announcement in the 'clear'. I would have been more surprised to hear anything this week than I would to have been by not hearing anything. Also, one would think if these conversations have been taking place at various poitns and with various parties since some time in 2012, then whomever is ready to write the check already has a solid plan and strategy in place. Very likely a timeline as well. So a delay due to not having a strategy or plan in place would be extremely unlikey (and very worrisome).

    Wait, there are calls for a thread on an internet forum to devolve into rumor and speculation? You're new here aren't you? This is why Al Gore MADE the internet!
