that "multiple sources" inform them that Warren Spector "is said to be leaving"
ION Storm, reporting the Austin Texas-based developer has also laid off 20-25
is the headline on a similar story on IGN, which reports on
the layoffs, as well as Eidos' explanation that this was a normal staff
reduction associated with the completion of the pair of game projects that were
underway at ION, quoting the publisher as dismissing the idea that Warren was
laid off as well, though they don't actually come out and say he did not quit.
They have yet to receive a reply from ION Storm, but this was Eidos' response to
questions about Warren's departure:
"Ah rumors... well that sounds like a
good one... but it is just a rumor," said the representative. "He certainly has
not been laid off."
