Quote from article: " Has MS stuck Halo Wars with a PR Plasma grenade..."
For those of you who didn't catch the news, Ensemble Studios, Age of Empires creators and current developers of the forthcoming Halo Wars, was officially closed down yesterday by Microsoft. That's right; some genius at Microsoft has announced the closure of a developer developing one of its key titles BEFORE their last game has even been released. Smooth moves indeed.
Details are fairly scarce at the moment, but amid the chaos, two important questions arise: why was this awesome, pioneering studio shut down, and will this decision ruin the still incomplete Halo Wars?
