A blog about MMOs and everything else
Thanks for the link. Apparently some have been layed off, if I read this twitter message correctly (?)
I thought it was official policy to never comment on rumors and speculations? Why the change now?
I agree, Ahtchu. The fact that Blizzard commented this was the reason I put it on the blog.Anyway, it seems Titan is quite the mess right now. Sad :(
Losing 800,000 subscriptions in the last 3 months is alarming to say the least. The curve seems to get steeper.And games like Skyrim, D3, Guild Wars 2, SWTOR and the like are all gonna have their effect on it too.It might snowball out of control really fast.
Ledger: the 800K loss probably owes a lot to the initial reaction of China to Cataclysm. Losses in the west were probably around 300K, judging from WoW revenue.
Yeah, 8 people leaving Blizzard is a sure sign that the company and all their projects are doomed. While CCP laying off 20% of their workforce is a sign of a healthy refocus on core values.
@ToboldThank you that comment was awesome. you made my day!
You just stepped straight into the Fanboy trap, Tobold. You know that? :)Blizzard still prints money. But if even Staats alone left, this means that something is going on with Titan. Even if he left because he wanted to leave. That's why this is interesting; not because Blizzard is doomed.
Obviously he left because Ghostcrawler said they were going to squish staats.
He worked on Titan, Neowolf ;)
