Kevin O’Leary is my new hero.
“Poor #blackops2 you look tired,” he said on Twitter overnight, “you should take a year off and rest.”
Who’s Kevin O’Leary? EA’s Global Product Manager, responsible for Warfighter. He’s one of the few people in this ‘industry’ that’s bold enough to come out with what a good chunk of people are thinking, and his subsequent tweets echo the idea that he’s just speaking his mind.
As he’s perfectly entitled to do.
Whether or not Black Ops II looks tired or not (there’s certainly a dash of innovation going on) is up for discussion, but the world would be a much richer place if people didn’t all fawn over each other and pretend everything’s all shiny and happy with competition.
“In case any other news outlets are following me,” he joked, “I’d like to be quoted on things like cars, snowboarding, GoPros, haikus & extreme sleeping.”
Of course, let’s wait and see what Warfighter comes up with, eh Kevin?
