Hypothetically speaking, who would have the power to make them work on the game? Not that they would now of course, that time has passed... But who would have had the power in 2013 to force Sega and GBX's hand and make them fix the mess if they had the money to spend. Fox?
This is a good question.
Is there any precedent?
Where a license holder has licensed out an IP to another studio to create a project but the project ended up bringing shame to that IP's franchise and the license holder demanded the studio correct it?
I feel like in this medium the only franchises big enough for this to have happened with are Star Wars, Call of Duty, Marvel titles and a bit further down the line AvP.
Remember back when Infinity Ward and Activision had their little debacle... I believe regarding Modern Warfare 3, plenty of IW employees were let go and Sledgehammer was brought in to help finish MW3.
BUT IW is an inhouse developer of Activision so its not quite the same as anything with A:CM.
When Mad Max: Fury Road was "completed" Roadshow & Warner Bros (whom I assume are the licenseholders) decided to bring EVERYONE back for reshoots (outside of the usual planned reshoots) including the Director (who started the Franchise). That is sorta similar.
