Maybe I shouldn't post something negative here, but I see this and to me it explains why new development has been quiet on TGC side the last few months...and it has me thinking reassignment of development resources over to this project.  Guess we'll just have to wait and see what it means for TGC.  I know the competition isn't starting work on a snowboarding game and are 100% focused on golf...so it's a concern from my personal perspective.

I think this announcement was made by Anthony to let us know what they've been up to.   I'm sure he already knows that we're not on this forum for a snowboarding game but I give them my support none the less.

Hahahaha - Paul wins the prize!!
We had a sweepstake going on with who would post this first. I had OMG, damn!!

HB has nearly 100 people, split into 3 teams. The golf team is actually bigger now than it was a year ago and none of us have anything to do with Infinite Air. That's a completely separate team at the other end of the building.

People have always moved around from project to project depending on specific skills and needs etc, but since the start of the snowboarding project the TGC team size has not changed dramatically (and the minor change of team size we did experience was in the positive direction.)

I also hope John does snowboarding commentary.

That's funny.  Do I get a share of whatever you wagered?  :)

The dedicated teams are reassuring...glad to hear it and thanks for addressing the concern Anthony.  Sorry for whatever I cost you!

You guys over there at HB Studios are some funny funny kids!   I don't know why but I get the feeling you guys are setting us up for some exciting news in the near future in regards to TGC,   but I want to take this short moment in time to remind you guys that I'm still happy with TGC.   It's been my favorite game of all time hands down and that is saying alot..

HB project manager Anthony Kyne told Eurogamer "We wanted to make a snowboarding game, and i asked the hb team whether or not we needed any snow in this game, because from my perpective we could make a quicker product by just allowing players to add wheels to their snowboard, and roll down hills, so in a sense you have your Tony Hawk fans potentially buying the game, but you'd also have your hardcore snowboarding fans who still go at it, even after the snow melts".
