Sigil gone?

Rumor mill goes into overdrive.

As someone who’s been through rounds of layoffs: if that happened, it’s pretty crappy.

As Damion commented in the F13 thread, closing the company down to liquidate outstanding debts and then sending offer letters to the employees left standing is a fairly standard procedure… it’s what happened when Ubisoft acquired Wolfpack Studios. Hopefully SOE can pick up most of the guys working on the game; no one likes abandoning their baby.
