Apparently the SOE Developer Matt Boudreaux, known as AdeptStrain, has left the team working on SWG.
He was the developer responsible for the 'new jedi system', the melee animations and, of course, the craptcular addition of zombie-stormtroopers into the game.
By any conventional standards, this would make him an instant 'shoot on sight'. However, to give him his pitifully small due, he seems to have been the last SWG Developer who was actually adding anything to the game - the rest seem to have been dedicated to, well, nothing really. Maintainance, maybe? Who can tell?
It is reported by massively.com that his role at SWG will not be filled by anyone else.
So that, ladies and gentlemen, is a strong implication that SOE is definitely winding-down SWG, putting it into mothballs until final closure... when? It can't be too far off.
All in all, that is bad news because it means that SOE and LA have finally washed their hands of SWG - and that it has no future in any shape or form, certainly not a pre-CU version.
And now here's the second bit of bad news - you remember SOE Developer Matt Boudreaux, known as AdeptStrain? The kid who gave us 'new jedi', zombie-stomtroppers etc? Guess where he's ended up?
That's right. He's just been signed on by Bioware to work on the SWTOR project.
You know, I begin to wonder if Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is going to be a hundred percent successful...
