Is FASA closing its doors?

With all the hype Microsoft is trying to generate around Shadowrun, you'd think team morale at FASA would be riding high. A thread on the official Shadowrun forums would seem to indicate otherwise. A poster by the name of Boomstick, claiming to be an employee of FASA, has declared that FASA is shutting its doors.

He adds that Shadowrun brings nothing new to the FPS genre and is graphically subpar.

The game that Microsoft has been raving about it just going to be canceled even though its close to release. Microsoft wouldn't allow this studio to go under and some disgruntled employee isn't going to change that.

The Lead Product Manager has closed the thread and called BS.

I very much doubt that as well, MS want this game to succed seeing as its one of the first cross patform game to be played online by the Xbox 360 and PC users.

I don't think they are closing their doors... They are probably changing their doors. Who knows maybe microsoft is purchacing their studio and they will soon be part of microsoft studio.

MS potentially buying FASA? That actually sounds more reasonable.

Methinks a disgruntled (former) employee has a large axe to grind.

Microsoft already owns FASA Interactive. Instead of pointing you towards Wikipedia, which is becoming so passe, how about... a link to the official Shadowrun website! Have a look at the logos at the bottom.

It just has that vibe to it and of what I played of Shadowrun it may be a good buy. I'm testing the Shadowrun beta and put some info up if any of you guys are interested.
