    it depends on the following -

    does a enw game engine need to be made if so tack on a year or so
    does the game need to be developed for a enw platform card chip etc? if so either tack on a year or lower the quality of the graphics physics etc. This is why the PS3 is sucking so badly as compared to the xbox 360 despite a similarly powerful GPU and a more powerful CPU.
    how much hiden pron and other shid si scatted throughout the game
    etc.

    They probably have 100s of workers, but probably only a dozen or two people doing the art and the rest coding. Since you wouldn't want there to be major differences in sceneros and stuff like that o.o.

    typically a design crew rarely surpasses 50 people. Read the credits in a game, or the packaging which comes with a game.
