Should the logo be updated?[edit]

By logo i mean the one on BGS's Linkedin Page?Timur9008 (talk) 19:00,August 29, 2016 (UTC)

I don't see how it's any different. The main logo for the profile is the same as here. The banner is the same, just colors reversed. -- ferret (talk) 16:35, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
aside from the colors,it also lists Maryland and Montreal,meaning logo applies to both studios/offices.Although i guess we should wait if Montreal gets their own logo.Timur9008 (talk) 20:49,August 29, 2016 (UTC)
That's not their logo, it's just a banner. Note that Linkedin is used for recruiting purposes so they're putting the cities up front and easily visible. The "profile avatar" is the same logo we have. -- ferret (talk) 18:07, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for clearing that up,i was confused there.Timur9008 (talk) 21:17,August 29, 2016 (UTC)

I'm just gonna take this issue to the talk page. I really think it sends the wrong message to format franchise duration as "(1998-2018)" for example, when the franchise hasn't yet ended. I'm certain the reaction of most readers won't be that there's a new video game coming if it says "present" rather than the year of most recent release; Just that Bethesda is still holding on to these franchises and supporting them. You don't see the articles for TV shows saying "2010 to 2018" just because the next season hasn't come out yet; We know it's gonna keep going because it hasn't been cancelled. It might honestly be worth it just to remove those years in parentheses altogether, as it doesn't add much to the article, and most other video game developers' articles don't bother with this kind of thing at all.

BruzerFox, TV shows cannot be compared well here, as many reliable sources point out that the series will continue production. For video game series it is a different story. Game series are hardly ever officially cancelled (12 years on and we are still waiting for Bully 2, Grand Theft Auto V has been five years ago, and Redneck Rampage hasn't released since the 90s although the developer and the publisher both still exist in some form), so saying something will come out because that is highly likely constitutes original research and is not verifyable.

That's fair. I see your point. What do you think about removing the years entirely, though? You've helped convince me that displaying the lifespan of a series like this doesn't matter at all. BruzerFox 13:00, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
BruzerFox, in the infobox, maybe (neither opposed nor strongly supporting). Howver, on the main BethSoft article I feel as though the Games section would look rather empty and make the decade separation look weird and purposeless. Can you think of a compromise?
