Square brackets normally means the reporter has changed the quote slightly to make more sense taken out of context. The most common is adding surnames when someone has been talking about a coworker or replacing "he" "she" or "them" with proper names.

sounds exciting!, lets just hope they have the skill and creativity needed to create s GREAT IP,...., sci fi shooters are a dime a dozen, heres hoping these new games arent just the same old shooters that have been done to death,...we need new original titles, not the same old "play it safe" shooters, which have money and sales in mind before fun.

Considering it's a first party studio in particular, there's no guarantee the four IPs are all games. You could be looking at a game with a tie-in web series or something, or would that still count as the same IP if they were linked...I suppose so.

Anyway, you get my point, it's not called Black Tusk 'Game' Studios. I'm sure I had a half-decent idea when I came in...
