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

(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.
