This is great news. 450 newhires means EVERYONE in Rhode Island and 3 stray cats will have a job. Woohoo!

I don't find that joke funny, not one bit.

Those three stray cats happen to have advanced degrees in both game level design and game asset rendering/management.

you should be showing them some respect for their 1337 skillzorz.

Is there enough room in Rhode Island for 450 more jobs?

They'll be extremely fortunate if this generates a mere 200 new jobs.

38 is coming in with their own preexisting staff, and the largest single-title MMG companies I know of employ at most 300. Unless Copernicus gets WoW numbers - which is unlikely - they won't even need that many CS people.

I'm going to have to say that the folks in my old home state are getting taken to the cleaners on this one. But that's nothing new. Corruption is as natural in Rhody as quahogs and coffee milk.

I wonder if that is from stimulus money?

Well that probably covers a huge portion of their 2 games costs.

Well, I guess now that we've found out where they are going to be housed...

let's see if they can actually make some decent games.

I'm so tired of the "Curt Schilling this" and "We're gonna" and "Blah blah blah" that at this point, I really don't wanna hear anymore day to day from this company unless it's actually about some MMOs. (not RPGs)

Wake me in 3 years when they are done with their MMO, please.

"The move to RI will create 450 technology jobs at the outset. Recent projections estimate that 3 months after the release of the game itself, and depending on exactly how much the game will suck, approximately 439 of those will be lost."
