A TwitLonger post from Derek
(who cannot be confined to 140 characters) says he has heard reports
of departures from Star Citizen
developer Cloud Imperium Games which may in part be caused by his
publication of an internal email from the company. The developer turned crusader
says a couple of employees quit and a couple were fired as the result of the
leak, and while the details of his post are not officially confirmed,
a tweet from
does confirm this Community Manager's departure from the company under "odd" circumstances
(Derek's report says he was fired for suspicion of having leaked the mail).
According to Derek's sources, the bad news is just beginning for the CIG, as he
says a round of downsizing is in the works to reduce the company's burn rate,
and that this is the reason for the recent launch of
sales of Endeavor
ships for $350-$450.
