Just FYI

The head honcho at Montreal specifically states that Shanghai developed Pandora so they can concentrate solely on Chaos Theory.

It appears we DO have Shanghai to thank for the most innovative multiplayer deathmatch game since deathmatch was created, if I'm not mistaken. So they're not total failures, unless I'm mistaken. They just need to stay away from single player campaigns.
