Humongous Inc. is a new division of Atari and not related to Humongous Entertainment, which was shut down. So recent Backyard sports titles (ie 2007 series) from Humongous Inc. should be listed on a separate page, if they must be listed at all. -- Kirben

They are related to Humongous Entertainment in the fact that Atari owns the Humongous brand and had decided to continue with the name and the series. It may not be the same people at Humongous, nor the same building or the original owners - but Infogrames has owned Humongous long enough to consider it the same company IMHO.

Humongous Entertainment was bought by Infogrames (Atari now) and became a division of Infogrames. The Humongous Entertainment division was closed in 2005. A Humongous Inc. division was created in 2006, in order to continue the Backyard sports brand of games. So clearly Humongous Entertainment and Humongous Inc. are separate developers.

I don't see them as seperate personally. For example, the same could be said of the original Disney Animation studios and the new Disney Animation studios under the control of Pixar. The original Disney animation studios were shut down, and the majority of the staff was fired. The new Disney 2D Animation studios occupy a different building, use different animators, and has a different division name, but it's still Disney Animation studios. In my opinion, if they use the same engines, use the same brand name, and use the same game series names, it's the same company. The games have a right to stay linked under Humongous Entertainment - in my opinion at least. MetaFox 01:01, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
Yes, you're right that they should be moved. But, I still think we should have the new ones just to keep the continuity of the Backyard Sports. --Clone2727 13:14, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
