Threewave Layoffs

Threewave Software has "essentially closed its doors," reports Gamasutra, following up on a tweet saying: "The Threewave Vancouver studio has shut down due to no new contracts. RIP CTF gods." They had an exchange with Dan Irish, CEO of the company famous for its work on David "Zoid" Kirsch's Capture the Flag modification for the original QUAKE, who said "some, not all" of their staff was let go, and Threewave is "entering a reorganization phase," and: "We are trying to move forward in a manner that reflects today's realities."

Sorry to see them in trouble.

But.. We still play Quake1 CTF! Sunday evenings 10pm est, check the www.quakeone.com site to see what server we are on. Sometimes we don't start until a bit later, around midnight. If you love Quake1 CTF, it is still a fantastic game. See you there.

I still have that flag capture sound in my head. Anyone know where to get that?? It'd be great to play for incoming texts.

I was the under impression that they were the initial designers for the latest Wolfenstein MP but then it was given to someone else. Such a shame

Honestly, while they pioneered CTF in FPSs, what have they done since? A studio doesn't earn its right to survive by its initial roots, and looking at their accomplishments since then isn't all that impressive:

QFT... They asked for it in the end.
