Troika is indeed dead.
 
Troika is indeed dead. [ Company -> Update ]

More info on Company: Troika Games
Andrew "Mandrew" Meggs, who used to work for Troika, has posted on NMA shedding some more light on what happened to Troika.
Everyone's talking about what the ex-Troika people are going to do. The reality is that for the past several months Troika has been on a skeleton crew. The real layoffs happened in two waves at the start and end of November, and a lot of people have already moved on. I know of ex-Troika people working for all of these companies:

Activision
Day One Studios
Mythic Entertainment
Obsidian Entertainment
Point of View (2)
Seven Studios (2)
Sony (2)
Supervillains (2)
Swinging Ape
Tiger Hare (2+)
Turtle Rock
Treyarch

(And any of you who are reading this and don't see your current employer listed, by all means PM me. Let's not lose touch.)

So there you go, it's confirmed. Troika are dead, though the fact that they've been in trouble since November last year is interesting. Maybe that explains the lack of polish in Bloodlines?

Waiting for an official statement seems to be a technicality now.
