    Aye, I've heard this elsewhere. We can only hope that the UXO development team is not affected by this.

    I wouldn't concern myself overly much with this info. It doesn't mean UXO is history, just that they are shrinking their opperations. image

    On another forum, Cal stated that UXO will continue development. Other then that he cannot comment on how this will affect UXO. At least we can feel safe knowing the game will continue image.

    I doubt this will wreck UXO or they would not have done this.  Obviously they have enough development team already and don't need the other company.
