BioWare debunks CVG's rumor: "Sorry, but that is just untrue."

In response to CVG's "news" report of "chunk of Mass Effect team quits BioWare," Chris Priestly from BioWare has posted a message in the official Mass Effect forum. Here is his whole response (with the original typos):

Sorry, but that is just untrue. I like how CVG listens to "tipsters" and reposrts things as possible fact. [roll eyes]

As with all companies, we do lose people here from time to time (some of you may remember Bob McCabe recently left for example). And we do usually lose more after a project than at any otehr time. Why? Well, we have some pretty dedicated people here. Even though they have other real world issues (family concerns, returning to school, other employment opportunities, etc) they put them on hold till they finish the current game. Once their part is done, then they move on.

It happens. It's not a bigthing and is pretty industry standard. I do laugh at the "20+" people mentioned in the quote though.

[End of Chris' message]
