DP "overextended" (depleted) themselves prior to production beginning in March 2016. They were most likely banking on new investment from an outside source or new game like "Pinbot's Baby Mama 3.0." That obviously fell through and shiz hit the fan. DP didn't have the money to pay ARA for 200 or so preorder games, otherwise, this would have been done to save money (and time) on the unit volume. I don't see a CM dedicating and holding-up labor and production line(s) in small batches so that DP could pay in increments.
