After apparently getting laid off, David Jaffe took to twitter to explain his latest moves, which includes creating his own game studio in San Diego. *Update* He wasn't laid off
Lol David making casual games is a fake here's the article hence the update section. http://n4g.com/news/936006/...
Good news that he's starting his own studio, like most developers he thrives with as much freedom as possible. I wish him all the best for the future. Oh, and f*** iOS games!
David Jaffe did not get laid off. He is the Co-Creator of Eat Sleep Play... he can't be laid off. read his twitter account.. he has been very vocal and the day just started.. he is staying with ESP until Twisted Metal has launched and they iron out some of the first week issues... that being said he has announced he will start a company in the San Diego based area.. because he misses working with the development teams on a daily basis... he has not mentioned about working on any titles or systems... this is all he has said about the subject... so no he is not laid off. he is leaving the company after Twisted Metal and he is starting his own company... and he has no idea what type of game or what system it will be on.
More importantly he is co-owner. Co-founders/creators can be fired...see Steve Jobs as a popular example.
yeah.. either way.. the man isn't laid off or fired. he is leaving on his terms..
i sorry to hear Jaffe is leaving. I'm not a sony supporter but i am a longtime fan of the twisted metal series. I would have love to buy this last twisted metal that he is appart of. but i just can't support online passes. so sadly i would be buying this game. best of luck to jaffe's on his next project.
Too bad devs dont care if you support online passes or not, they're still going to be there. Just get ready for next gen when all games with multiplayer will have online passes. EA's already done it, Sony has done it, Activision will probably do it too.
I'm confused. So is it Jaffe or the other co owner that wants to go into the casual gaming?
Jaffe is leaving the company... the other dude is the Casual Gamer... Jaffe is creating a new company.. because "Game are too big to be made 300 miles away" Jaffe likes to work close with the team.. He currently isn't able to do that.. Jaffe has not confirmed he is making iOS or Casual Games.. David Jaffe has only said he is staying on ESP until Twisted Metal is done and after that he is starting a company in San Diego.. that's all he has said.. "HE is starting a COMPANY" David Jaffe has not said he is making iOS or Casual Games...
Thanks for clearing that up.
I mean after you recruit all your tech people, because I have no tech skills. I've been trying to find grapics designers and programmers, but it's very difficult. I'm crazy creative and can't think of another dev that shares my philosphy more.
