Looking at the facts, I don't think there's much room to doubt the fact that Troika has finished. After the email that was posted yesterday, David "marshmonkey" Marsh, formerly of Troika, had this to say to Exitium, everyone's favourite flip-flopper (and notoriously gleeful when these rumours first surfaced), on NMA:
Time to pop the champagne Exitium.
I think we can take this as confirmation, given the way Marsh has been very careful about his comments and them being misinterpreted in the past. I'm happy to be proved wrong, but I can't see any other way to look at it.

We're waiting on an official statement which will likely be along soon. None of this is 100% confirmed until then.

I don't quite understand how this happened, as I'm led to believe all of Troika's games sold reasonably well with good reviews. I'd put it down to bad management rather than bad sales, but that's just me speculating. I'm sure there's an interesting story to be told behind all this. And I wonder what Leonard Boyarsky, Tim Cain, Jason Anderson and the other staff are going to do now.

There goes Fallout's spiritual successor, and a fine company.
