The Creators or PGR, Geometry wars and Blur have met their end.

Because it's activision.

They've closed the gap with the former douchebaggery of EA and haven't stopped since.

GLaDoS wasn't that bad.

I'd say they passed Truth and Regret instead.

Or maybe Sovereign.

Sovereign is still pretty damn far ahead, it takes some balls to pull the trigger to exterminate all intelligent life in the galaxy over and over again.

Update to the story. They might get a buyer and survive. There seems to be some interested parties.
