Few companies maintain the same name forever. Some rename, merge, are bought out, or generally acquired. It would be helpful to manage the progression of various devs and publishers with a timeline progression and/or a tree of ownership.
1) Squaresoft > Square > Square and Enix merge > SquareEnix
2) Namco and Bandai merge > Namco Bandai > Bandai Namco Games
3) Activision and Blizzard Merge > Create holding company called Activision Blizzard that owns the two companies Activision and Blizzard.11 votes
We are looking at redoing our company data taxonomy, part of which is possibly adding several ‘layers’ to companies, such as Divisions for example.
Companies are a bit lacking at the moment as we historically have been focusing on Games, but we gradually intend to start giving them more love :)
The idea is to have a special section called "Editions" which would be different from "Versions". This section would be only dedicated to collector's editions, GOTY and so on. Could be added under the "This game is a version." section on the edit page, as "This game is a special edition."10 votes
Indeed there is a lot of value in such a feature to help differentiating different types of versions and editions.
We’re in early phase of looking into this, it’s absolutely something we need and want to have, but it’s also a bit of a complicated data structure with a lot of exceptions and edge cases, so we want to do it the right way.
We’ll likely run it by you Keepers once we figure out something ;)

In addition to Steam and mobile platforms, links to the web storefronts of additional platforms would be helpful.10 votes
Update on this, we identified one possible issue which is that unlike PC stores, most console links are region specific.
So we’re investigating how we could either generalised them or whether we’d introduce this when we tackle localization of IGDB.
When Bundles include titles of a long running series, it is possible to encounter times that have too many titles to display with the basic name.
Ex. Mega Man (1).7 votes
We’ve had this issue else where on the site, good catch, we need to get onto a more widespread fix. It’s not actually to do with Bundles specifically but the game selector.
Can't receive updated data for this game through the API.2 votes
Heya! We’re currently doing large changes around the consistency of data between our site and API. These out of sync issues should be resolved very soon, and we will be going back to look at individual cases such as these games afterwards if there are still edge cases.
If you spot any more feel free to add them in the comments as it could be helpful.
Thanks a lot and apologies for any inconvenience in the meantime!

Shouldn't this be a hover effect?1 vote
Yup that’s a bug alright, it should indeed be a hover and its behaviour seems to be inverted instead.
i created a bug ticket for it in our backlog, we’ll get around to plan a fix for it in the coming weeks.
Thanks a lot, and well spotted!
