More bad news at Black Isle Studios, where lead designer J.E. Sawyer resigned
just last month (story
), as Farewell,
but not goodbye on the Interplay Entertainment Forums
(thanks Nels Nelson)
is a post from Damien "Puuk" Foletto that indicates that the studio is
now shut down, referring to today as his "last day at the (former) BIS."
This follows suit with a note sent along by designer John Deiley:
marks the end of an era. Black Isle Studios is no more. In yet
another sweeping layoff of employees, Interplay has officially let go the last
of it's Black Isle employees (save two that I know of) and dissolved the
division. Also, the non-announced title that the division was working on,
Fallout 3, has been "shelved" to quote management.
