Looks like they finally got a new website up after being killed off by Intel. Project Offset looked jaw-dropping to me and its heartbreaking that Intel screwed these guys out of years and years of work on their baby project, but they live on with a new game called The Gunsmith.

http://www.fractiv.com/

Our previous company, Offset Software, was purchased by Intel in 2008. Our labor of love was Project Offset and the game engine that went with it. As many of our fans already know, Project Offset was cancelled. The graphics hardware it was being designed for did not ship and our game was a casualty of this.

The IP and Engine are property of Intel so its future is out of our hands. We have tried working with Intel to obtain the rights and there are some good people there who have made some effort to help us, but without success.

We would like to thank all those who supported us and the project. We learned some good lessons along the way and met some incredibly talented people who we are fortunate enough to call our friends.

+1... that's too bad that they won't be finishing PO though... hopefully they got a big sack of money before Intel drove that game into the ground... they should use all that $$ to finish PO...:(

Who cares, they will just sell out anyway. If they really cared to be game developers they would have never sold their company and tech to a chipset manufacturer.
