Spector Departs ION

Warren Spector exits Eidos on GameSpot (thanks Frans) has word that the famed designer has parted ways with ION/Eidos. They quote a spokesperson as saying: "Eidos announces that Warren Spector has relinquished his role as Studio Director at Ion Storm. Warren has chosen to pursue personal interests outside the company, but he will continue to work for Eidos as an IP consultant. His insight and expertise is highly valued by Eidos, and the company looks forward to continuing its relationship with Warren in his new role." The story goes on to speculate that Warren's consulting with Eidos may be on the next Tomb Raider game and repeat rumors of a possible move to Midway. In another developer departure, Fred Nilsson's .plan File announces the animator is leaving id Software to return to the movie industry.

I know people like to blame Smith, but he did leave and, if you listen to Spector's interviews, Spector honestly believes that these are all great, wonderful things.
We have a winner!

Spector was constantly promoting IW throughout its pre-release marketing. Regardless of who fucked the game up, he put his reputation behind it in the interviews he gave and the messages he posted. He even continued to defend it after it came out.

He didn't have to do any of this. He could have just kept his mouth shut and directed all inquiries to the PR dept. or Smith himself. Instead he fully endorsed the game.

Good riddance.
