CANADIAN SHAKIN [Author: Arcadian Del Sol]

News from the world of off-line games (For some of you, it is news that such games still exist), as Gamespot reports massive layoffs at SirTech’s Canadian outpost. Progress on two major projects has been stopped: Wizardry 9 and Jagged Alliance 3.

SirTech cites financial troubles as the reason for the layoffs and project cancellations, leaving most to ponder what other reasons there could be for layoffs and project cancellations.

The fire is out, but the coals still smolder: SirTech has indicated that should they be able to obtain funding within the next few weeks, both the Wizardry and Jagged Alliance sequels would resume development. For the sake of Mauritania, I hope and pray they find a way.
