Yeah SOE never lie to the people before... They left for a reason and in his comment he did say "It's true that Corey and I no longer work for SOE," Wilson told us. "This was a very hard decision to make, but it's the right decision for both us and the project. There were a variety of factors into making this decision, but we wish SOE and The Agency the best success.".

I think they left like the game did not go the way there wanted it to go....

This just in; John Smedley gives himself a raise, while they continue to cut headcount at the once successful, but steadily declining under Smeds control, MMO developer.

Hmmm. When three of the main people behind a game's development voluntarily leave (to start an independent studio) before said game even launches, you've got to wonder why.

Based on past track record, I'm guessing SOE corporate was meddling in the creation process (again) and/or not listening to their development teams (again) in favor of whatever the marketing division wanted to see instead.

We'll see The Agency on-schedule, I'm sure, but I have my doubts about how finished or polished it will be when it finally arrives.

And SOE wonders why they're losing market share ...
