Oh damn!

 

Edit: I wonder how that works with Mr Avellone being one of the co-owners?

 

Anyway thank you to the gentleman for the years of great gameplay experiences, and stories that really touched me. I guess the hard part really is in the letting go.

Quite an experience to live in misery isn't it? That's what it is to be married with children.

I've seen things you people can't even imagine. Pearly Kings glittering on the Elephant and Castle, Morris Men dancing 'til the last light of midsummer. I watched Druid fires burning in the ruins of Stonehenge, and Yorkshiremen gurning for prizes. All these things will be lost in time, like alopecia on a skinhead. Time for tiffin.

 

Tea for the teapot!

Bet is with InXile? Van Buren?

 

Going indie? Making beer videos?

Hah, I'd love to see Bethesda finally get a decent writer again, but what are the chances of that?

 

It's a blow to Obsidian for sure, but I'm dying to know what he's planning to do now. It looked very much like "I'm not allowed to say yet."

I don't think he is leaving the industry. Maybe he got offered a lot of money somewhere else. Bethesda? He would be needed there, for sure.

Wherever MCA is headed, I hope it's well paying and he gets to continue making great games.  Best of luck, MCA.

Is this for real?

 

Edit: It is according to the tweet, eh. Well frack, everything is going to hell.

 

All right, could someone do an "in memoriam"? What has Chris done on Pillars, FNV, AP, F2, etc? That'd be nice.

UPDATE: Chris Avellone confirmed his departure from Obsidian in an email to me.
 

"It is true, Bertie," he wrote, "and many well wishes to the folks at Obsidian. On the future, I'm off to pursue new projects, but I can't say anything more at this time beyond life is short, and the ideas keep growing."

Good luck to him. Sounds like he's wanting to do some new stuff. I wonder if he'll go try going indie for a while.

Not really surprising, considoring the rumors about his disagreements with Josh and all that. In any case, all the best wherever his path takes him. Hopefully we'll see more awesome writing from him. His companions were my favorite in PoE. :)

What were the disagreements over?

PoE. Chris wanted to take a different diraction with the game. Though these are only rumors, so they might be completely wrong. :)

We may be missing the bigger picture here.  With MCA gone, who's going to fill the role as Obsidian's sexy beast?

 

It's always been Tim
