FFS White Wolf, what are you playing at? / Where are the game pages?

I'm half way through writing a post about Changeling: the Lost, and thought it would be a good idea to include a link the C:tL page on the WW website, for anybody that isn't familiar with this excellent game.

Turns out they don't hold any game specific information on their site anymore. Not even on Vampire: the Requiem.
There's a split between 'old' and 'new' world of darkness, Exalted and Scion, and that's it.
In the past they've given each game line its own set of pages that include a description of / introduction to the line, line specific news, downloads and bonus material.
Now they give nothing.
Thanks for that, White Wolf / CCP. Thanks a bunch.

I've seen the rationale of moving the pdf downloads off the site and letting DrivethruRPG handle it instead, and the sudden and massive move to fan generated content (which sounds fine, on paper), but what we are seeing here is a total abandonment of the games that made the company worth acquiring by CCP in the first place.

Hell, SJ Games still maintains an In Nomine site, and that's been out of print for nearly a decade.
Because it still has fans.

I feel disappointed and let down. How could you, White Wolf, how could you?
For shame.
