When presented with the Mandrew posts, Boyarsky did not deny their
authenticity. "We wish that [post] hadn't gotten out," he told
GameSpot. "We're not ready to talk about it now. I'll answer questions
at another time." As to when exactly that time will be, Boyarsky would
only say, "We're working on a post [to be sent out] by the end of
February." So until company officials say otherwise, Troika is
officially open for business.
So, maybe it's not 100% official that the company is dead? It's clear
there have been a lot of layoffs, though I suppose those layoffs
wouldn't know for certain what the status is with their former
employer. It's still possible there are the founding members - Cain, Boyarsky, Anderson - making up the company.
