Midway Confirms Departure of Blacksite Lead

Midway has confirmed that Blacksite: Area 51 creative director Harvey Smith has left the company shortly following a blunt critique on the poorly reviewed game.

Smith, whose past work includes the highly revered Deus Ex, made no secret about the tumultuous development of Blacksite: Area 51 when he said at the Montreal International Games Summit, "This project was so fucked up."

Midway's Chicago headquarters confirmed to Next-Gen on Friday that Smith, who was employed at the Austin studio, left the company. A rep said Smith's decision to leave was "mutual," echoing news of the departure that originated from GameTap Read. (Industry)
