5 billion dollar was also the additonal food, because pasting over 2 years, if you didn't noticed the program they have to pay again to have something new again, but highly due of building taxes had increase, checking if they lived america or londan, the tax house just rose up, so does the company building if they attend use which that why I said rent because some odd reason if you don't pay your taxes you can't lived on this land *cough**cough* (land freedom my *censorship*). 1st year it should of be 5.8 millions, but ever sences the taxes rise up again for building, and eletric, esamite was trippled making 17.4 millions all due of the earthquaks, storms and other unfreindly weather, the govern repair cost just hit the spot fill thous holes. How this is going be 5 billions, depending if the building get struck by earthquakes and not cover by insurances then yes it would be, but I am pretty sure it did and partly that building is another grands and tech support solving for dmg for computers and getting another program suited again with it.The hype has definitely died down, because of the long silences between updates, but riding on the hype only gets you so far as a company; for all means and purposes, continuing development on T:OW until it's up to scratch is beneficial in the long run, even if it takes another year (or more). Whatever delaying the game is costing them (whether in money or PR) is worth ending up delivering a quality product. It's a shame they can't utilise the hype to its full potential anymore, but it's hardly going to break them.
As for the 5 billion dollars worth of expenses... yeah, not sure how you ended up with that figure. I'm not sure how you would know how much Re-Logic pays for electricity, water and rent, how much tax they pay (over how much income), or how much they pay their employees either, really. Then again, judging from the figure you came up with (again, five billion?), I presume you might actually not.
if they had insurances, pretty much it would be another million still pay that bill, but they could get that partly back if any dmg on the building could of save few more bucks, but you know how the usually it runs people dont' have that insurances. as for today, how get to the below 5 billion which I said close to 5 billion, which I am always drunk with my caulation and I am still drinking today while I am buzzed. which they should be round up close 2.3 billion unless they made a bond with company they know could reduce that amount of cost for it would be in close to a billion dollar unless they got lucky very enough with very bloody goody bonds then they are back just deal with 500 million dollars. How could this end up 500 millions, depending on person permotions and include the gas bill keep them warm during winter. Then there is that part getting the players attentnion to do another youtube video which advertisment cost that other half millions reason, if it is not stunish another or whatever advertisment must roll in tell people about the game to try more, its not going be 60 buck buy the game which it would be cost around range 30-40 bucks for sure because the lost amount money unless they are able cheaply put it in 15 bucks range like same program as terraria and no differents which it would upset lots players for the ask return policy, trust me another thing trying avoid because the players are simplly are not satified of terraria if they beat the whole game and had to rely on mods to keep it challegening, if the other one is not very challegening then the modders then they could lose their hard working money for nothing. That why it could go red which they wasted 5 billion dollars matter amount the risk for to be.
Now leave me be I want to drink my cup.
