Somebody over on reddit linked this and noted the "actively looking for new opportunities" on Daniel Erickson's Linkedin.

I wish people would stop sacking people and also I wish people would stop leaving , it's getting very tiresome. This game has a hell of a lot of potential , more than a lot of mmo's out there , not a happy bunny.

Cheers,

Good riddance to him.

Nah, jokes aside I wish him all the luck where ever he goes.

Some supposed insider said a long time ago that DE and Dallas Dickinson (or was it James Ohlen?) were going to be the next to go but everyone scoffed. Looks like it is going to be true.

It's been real but the game just wasn't worth the sub for me anymore.

The higher ups always just 'Time to part ways with company X to look new opportunities' even when they are escorted by the security out of the office with a thousand dollar shoe mark in their behind.

But yeah, seems the house cleaning is continuing. Anyone know what happened to James Ohlen? Haven't heard anything from him since the summer.

I think the whole team that invisioned this game is gone to be quite honest. I don't really think that many of them are there anymore. So ...we'll see what comes of it.

There are still a few there, Jesse Sky is one of them, so is Amantangelo (or whatever his name is), and a few others.
