Hey guys… just stumbled upon this on the Dreamwave forums… with Candice Chen (DW’s Public relations manager) responding to all the rumours and controversy surrounding the state of DW.
"Just to clear this forum up…
Dreamwave is not going under, we are not downsizing and we are definitely going under to Marvel.
Pat LOVES Marvel and it his dream to be able to do art for them. He is still a freelance artist at the end of the day.
Capcom titles, unfortunately we returned some of the licenses such as Darkstalkers and Rival Schools, based on the sales of Megaman and Maximo. It is hard to produce an entire series when the sales prove it to be not as popular as our other titles. Udon was later give the opportunity to purchase these licenses.
TMNT was also finished due to certain agreements with the licensor.
There are many issues that concern which books we put out, and which we decide to end. Please don’t assume things are bad because certain products are removed. There are many factors that the consumer can’t see.
Hope you guys don’t lose faith in Dreamwave and we promise we’ll be here and kickin’ for a long time to come! =)
I hope I helped answer some of the questions going on around here. Fall 2004 is going to be a CRAZY season for us with tons of new projects coming out… and look out because some of those original DW titles, might be coming back! (but shh, I didnt say anything ) "
