    This won't be news to many of our forumites, but Jason Anderson's LinkedIn profile confirms he left InXile, where he spent less than two years as creative director working on what is widely assumed though not confirmed to be Wasteland 2 or a Wasteland spinoff. He is now working at Turtle Rock. As "the help".

    So there might be a Wasteland 2?! Any sources?!

    Edit: Interesting, i just read this in wikipedia:

    That sure is aggressive alright! :D

    No, just assumption. Not even vague rumors to back it up, it's just logic. InXile purchases Wasteland license + hires Jason Anderson = Wasteland 2.

    hmm

    That is too bad if he left that project, anyone know why he left?

    Wasn't it officially confirmed months ago?

    Well, that and the post-apocalyptic looking concept on their website. And them hiring designers with "fan of post-apocalyptic worlds" listed as a bonus trait.

    Got a better offer?

    No. I did ask. But: no.

    I told you months ago, yes, but I forgot to post it on NMA and GB, hence I did so now. I don't think the LinkedIn update was around when I told you or when you posted it on the Vault but I don't know when he did update it.

    Yeah, you told me earlier, but I didn't post it at The Vault until he posted it on LinkedIn, which was in January.

    Because Counter Strike 2 is going to be a better credit than Line Rider DS

    He knew too much about the outside world, and the Overseer didn't want him poisoning minds of the youth...

    I thought Turtle Rock didn't exist anymore and was absorbed by Valve during the Left 4 Dead creation?


    ahhh a little research shows that they reformed almost exactly a year ago. I wonder if they are entirely owned by Valve as a subsidiary or if they are their own company.

    They are a subsidiary of Valve.

    No, currently they are completly private. They are even signed up by a talent agency to look for new publishers.

    Also I'm really not sure if they are on such good terms with Valve anymore after what happened.

    What happened under Valve? I know there was the "closure" but all staff were moved to Seattle IIRC, all paid by Valve.

    If Valve owned the Turtle Rock name, depending on how it was re-negotiated, there is a possibility Valve could own a certain percentage of the company but not majority (similar to Microsoft with Bungie). Or they could have bought all that stuff back outright for all we know.

    Damn, I was liking the convo between brother none and the other guy but you guys deleted the posts. Lame. I am a valve supporter but it pisses me off they don't really try to pursue sequels to the Half Life series.
