Hopefully Larian will get a supportive publisher.
Another of my favorite Developers, Sir-Tech (Creaters of Wizardry), have stopped making games at the moment because they couldn't get a publisher for Wizardry 8. They ended up signing an exclusive shipping deal with one or two stores.
The game ended up winning numourus awards but no one wanted to distribute it because it didn't have mass blood or mature themes. (Bare in mind it had a solid engine a very long and serious story that branches out depending on how you played the game and multiple beginnings and endings.
