Why would they be eating crow? The initial report was wrong and just rumor mongering. Some people were let go from DR ... not TR, and the studio is not shutting down. So how was the initial report true?

Right here sunshine ...and if this "article" was the one that went to press yesterday in lieu of Zenke's tabloid rumour mongering drek no one would've said a thing. Nice to see Zenke's unvetted, rumour mongering was further invalidated by the latest Massively "article" on the subject as well.

Not quite a retraction but at least there is some truth in there rather than baseless supposition dressed as verified through "thrusworthy" "third parties" and self-arse covering with liberal use of a "rumour" tag and subsequent "article" title change.

Actually, both of them were defending TR's staff, as the orginal article said that they'd be "shutting the studio down". They weren't right, but they weren't wrong either, as this is hardly "massive layoffs" or the closing of thier Austin offices.

Steve Nichols just reported 13 out of 18 were affected from the Dungeon Runners team:

So, of the 21 reportedly affected, 13 were from a single title.

In other words, much ado about nothing with regards to the fluff piece written by Mike Zenke and published by Massively yesterday. MMORPG "journalism" is just a subset of tabloid "journalism." I have no idea why people give so much credence to it, then again I don't see the appeal of tabloids in general.
