Leonard Boyarsky of Troika Games have emailed me this official statement regarding the latest rumours of their "demise":As many of you may have already heard, Troika has laid off all of its employees and is closing its doors due to our inability to secure funding for future projects.I'm really out of words on this one, it's a shame to the gaming industry that not a single publisher can have the balls to go with this talented developing house...
We have not yet made the decision as to whether Troika Games as an entity will regroup and pursue future projects or simply cease to exist.
We want to thank all of our fans for their support these past seven years, it has really meant a lot to us that there were people out there who enjoyed our games enough to create fan-sites and follow our progress as a company. But we especially want to thank all of our employees - we had the pleasure of working with the some of the most dedicated, hard working, creative people in the industry, and we really appreciate all that they did for Troika.
Thanks for everything, Tim, Leonard, and Jason
