It's a sad day for me, as I really like Brad, and LOVED his original "VISION" for Vanguard...But it seems he did botch up VG pretty bad...Read for yourselves...Oh..and to those who say that this might be FUD, Nino (customer relations guy) posted on FOH that he will let them know his status tomorrow...Thats a good indication it is true...I just hope Sony can do something with this game...It has alot of potential...
The axe finally fell. It was only a matter of time, I suppose. And while many of you may try to spin this to make SOE look bad, apparently this wasn't really their doing. You see, SOE doesn't own Sigil. It doesn't own Sigil now and they won't own them tomorrow. But they do own Vanguard. What fate awaits that game? I don't know. Don't particularly care either.
But I do know that at approximately 4:30PM today, Sigil employees were told to meet outside. At which point they were terminated. On the spot. By whom? Doesn't seem to have been Brad McQuaid, if it was, nobody is talking. But that doesn't seem like something he'd do. But I suppose the executioner is irrelevant since most folks secretly want it to be SOE and it wasn't. As it stands, people were told to come back tomorrow to do their paperwork and some may get hired by SOE.
I contacted SOE since I'm not in the business of burning bridges or spinning news and they had this to say:
"...an announcement is forthcoming tomorrow."
