More on the Blizzard Departures

Gaming defections could hamper Vivendi gaming unit sale on CNN Money offers more on the shake-up at Blizzard following some key departures. Along the way we get the first hints that plans from the group that has departed may be more forthcoming that might have been imagined:
Later Tuesday, the now former-Blizzard employees will sit down for the first time to discuss – and name – their new game development company. None of the four were under contract nor were they bound by non-compete agreements. And all, he said, are eager to start working on a new product.
Update: Another Q&A with Bill Roper discussing the departures is up on HomeLAN Fed.

Yes, the Unreal Engine is great, but now TV will "feel" like Unreal. Sierra is taking the easy way out just to make money.

There is absolutely no reason that TV should feel like Unreal. The team has written a new physics engine from scratch and they are aware that the new game needs to have that tribes feeling. Using a licensed engine that you can modify a lot isn't the same as making a mod for game. It's too early to tell if TV will be any good but I don't think using an existing engine is a problem.
