Ritual Departures

Ritual's Tom Mustaine sends along news that because of the way things are playing out over there, they have been forced to release some personnel. Here's the word:
As most people know, Ritual Entertainment recently finished Star Trek: Elite Force II, a game we are all tremendously proud to have developed. We had three very engaging projects lined up for the team, but unfortunately, none of them came to actual fruition. We found ourselves unable to maintain multiple AAA teams and were forced to release some of the most gifted game developers back into the industry's talent pool.

Ritual continues to focus on our other two AAA titles: Counter-Strike for the Xbox and Counter-Strike: Condition Zero for the PC, both due out later this year.

It is really hard to tell if these guys lacked skill or their drive was not up to the in-humane levels required in the gaming industry. I wish them the best as I know they will not get a game job in dallas.. almost every company there seems to be shifting / shuffling / failing to produce a good product. Blame it on the designers / corperate / publishers / programmers / artists ... who knows... Their mix did not work... The game industry is full of carcases of driven and extremely talented people with bad fortune.... I feel as though I am one of those corpses and I have only been programming in it for 4 and a half years. Let this be a message to you kids... the game industry is TUFF... love it or hate it be sure you know what you are getting into... I am thinking of mowing lawns for a living.. =)
