I think it is a really shameful deal. Not bashing anyone but sometimes developers need to remember their roots.

You do realise that their roots are actually NOT in the gaming industry but in simulation programs for the professional market, don't you? The game series always was a side-project, the professional market was always their main theatre of operations.  ;D

The very acronym Vstep stands for: Virtual Simulation, Training & Education Platform

And as you can read on their website;

Quote from: Vstep website
VSTEP is an ISO9001:2008 certified company and a leading international developer of simulators and virtual training software. VSTEP creates 3D virtual training applications and simulators that allow people to build their skills in a practical and cost effective way. Its core product lines are:

*Maritime simulator solutions for the civilian & military marine industry (NAUTIS).
*Incident command and disaster management simulators for first responders (RescueSim).
*Training simulators preparing camera operators to identify suspect human behavior before a crime or terrorist attack takes place (EyeObserve).
*Crowd Control training simulators providing police commanders and training managers with an effective training tool for crowd-related incidents and demonstrations (Crowd Control Trainer).

The company is headquartered in the business heart of Rotterdam in the Netherlands, has offices in Singapore and the USA and a worldwide partner network in 20 countries. Since its founding in 2002, VSTEP has successfully delivered simulator solutions for leading industry clients and governmental organisations worldwide. As one of the industry leaders, VSTEP continues to innovate the virtual training world with professional, accurate and groundbreaking new simulation technology and sets the standard for innovative, effective high quality simulation.

Not much about gaming in there, as you can see.  ;)
