Chris Taylor Leaves Wargaming

GamesBeat has word that veteran developer Chris Taylor has departed Wargaming, where he was general manager of their Seattle office. They don't have the specific reason for the move, but they have a statement from Wargaming thanking Chris for his efforts. Chris joined Wargaming after selling them Gas Powered Games, the studio he formed in 1998. The news is the man behind Total Annihilation, Dungeon Siege, and Supreme Commander is starting a new independent studio, but it also sounds like he's building some time off into the plan. "Between Gas Powered Games and Wargaming, it was an eighteen year stretch and I wore myself out and didn’t realize it," Taylor told GamesBeat. "I’ve decided I need to take a few months off, regroup, and recharge before I dive into my next thing."

Was hoping Chris would bring the Wargaming money hat down on some new TA-style RTS. I think a WW1 variant of TA would be amazing, all my best TA games turned into insane hours-long stalemates full of daring attempts at breakthroughs. Nothing really beats TA, and nothing beat the slightly different but also awesome Forged Alliance. Nobody else has really come close. Hope he has a nice rest and comes back with some insanely stupid idea involving more units and scale than anyone thinks is possible and makes it with a UI that somehow works like he has before.
