IV getting a publisher, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

From the sound of it, it's gonna be a small game rather than a full blown title. Still, I'm not sure what to feel about this... how much control is C4 going to have over the game? Even if they're just calling the shots on the deadline, it could lead to a poorer quality product than IVs previous offerings, which would be damaging, especially considering the whole "we don't want publishers fucking with our games" thing.

Edit: I posted this before seeing the news/blog posts - guess I was wrong about it being a small project. So slightly revised thoughts - I guess if this deal gives IV the support they need to make an exceptional game that wouldn't be possible otherwise, then it's a good thing. But while I have faith in IV, I just hope C4 don't fuck things up
