[ Company -> Update ] - News related to Top Story: Troika Games closing down | More info on Person: Jason D. Anderson | More info on Person: Leonard Boyarsky | More info on Person: Tim Cain | More info on Company: Troika Games

I thought people would be interested in knowing what Leon Boyarsky, Tim Cain and Jason Anderson were doing with themselves after Troika's closure. I got in contact with Leon, who got in contact with Tim and Jason for me, and these were the responses I got:

Jason Anderson "has fled the industry and the state." (the state being California);

Leon Boyarsky is "still decompressing from the Troika implosion while looking around for a good opportunity"; and

Tim Cain is "officially on Sabbatical".

So there you go. I'd have thought there was a good opportunity for Bethesda to offer some kind of work, but what do I know...

Fuck all it seems icon_drunk

Why would Bethesda want Jason Anderson working on Oblivion? He doesn't seem to have any experience in daggerfall or working with bethesda beforehand. Not to mention he's fled the industry, state and country. He is being held in Groznyj Grad!

They can still send in SOlid Snake to bring him back. But like megatron said I think they have their own little system that doesn't need their help.

What does Sabbatical mean?

Means he's lazy and doesn't work. Means that he's rich also if he can afford a sabbatical.

They *could* hire them for FO3, but it's far easier to fuck it up by themselves.

And Oblivion is gonna be such a pile.

In our interview with Todd Howard, he said
Quote:
Are there any plans to have contact with developers who have worked on the franchise before, for consultation on the Fallout universe or any other aspect of development of Fallout 3?
Yes, that's already occurred. There's a lot of passion from everyone to see Fallout return.

What that means for hiring people to work on Fallout 3, I'll leave for you to decide.

As far as I recall, the Beth fanboys feel that they ought to apply for a job rather than than the other way round, and maybe Bethesda feels the same way. rolleyes

I would think they'd be working at Obisidian before Bethesda.

If they went to Bethesda they'd get drowned out in shittiness anyways.
