Quoted from spfxted:
Does anyone here know Roger Sharpe? I'd like to know if he was involved with trying to make a last minute deal with Fox.
Quoted from GGBGROUP:
I bet here's how it went down. Someone like Aaron or perhaps Kevin himself (unlikely) reached out to Roger, explained the situation somewhat earnestly, and asked for his help with contacting Fox. Roger says "No thanks". The end.
Roger has been in this business for a VERY long time. He has connections with pretty much every company that a pinball or gaming company would need to be in touch with. I guarantee if he was called early on he could have salvaged this even after Kevin had screwed up so badly. Look, at the end of the day it all boils down to money. Fox doesn't care what license you want to use as long as you are willing to pay what they want for it. So could roger still save this? Probably......but that being said it is very likely that if Roger was brought on and secured a license that the game would not look like, sound, or cost what we were told. Fox will want a say on every aspect of the art, the music, and sound to be used. So even if it was saved by Roger would people still be interested in a game that will likely cost more to make and not look or sound like they had been previously promised? Probably not.
