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."

There are ways to make the Forged Alliance AI run just fine with even 1500 units at its disposal. Sorian AI for one, but also be sure to disable land and naval expansion bases. Those kill game performance. Each expansion base is an entire new AI that persists even if you wipe out its units.

I'm bummed about this. I remember a rumor that he was working on a Total Annihilation successor. Oh well. Chris Taylor is like the only guy that gets this grand scale RTS concept. I hope he comes back for another round.

Ashes is a good attempt but too bare and too much like SoaSE. I don't really understand why so many people link it to SupCom. It must be the visuals. It's not much like SupCom.
