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."

SupCom 2 was not disastrous. Maybe to you, but there are many out there who really like the game.

It was a financial disaster for Square enix, and overall a bad sequel, it had lower average score then supcom. So the consensus is supcom 2 is worse then the first and its expansion.

Supcom 2 is not a bad game, but it is a bad supreme commander sequel. Supcom 2 comes off like it should have been its own game or a spin off, but a mainline sequel.

Right after supcom 2 chris taylors development team collapsed and was picked up by wargaming, aka square enix didn't want chris taylor to do supcom 3. That right there tells you a lot about how well supcom 2 did.

Im curious suppa, where are you getting your information? Because I have completely different info on what went down. You see, Chris happens to be a very good friend of mine. And your details are far from being correct. There were a lot of other things happening that caused SupCom 3 to not happen, it was not because they didn't want to do. That's all I'm going to say about it because its not my place to speak for Chris.
