Its probably got to do with his dislike of Romance and how popular they are to the fanbase?

Wow, did not see this coming.  I'll refrain from commenting further on this until we get more information but it is his life I suppose, his choice what to do with it... for now... *returns to world domination plans*

Sucks to see Chris go.

 

I wonder how this will affect Obsidian.  You always worry a little bit when one of a company's owners, and one of its creative forces, leaves, and what that means for the company going forward.

longknife has perhaps spent too much time in Germany, yes?

 

 

anywho, back on-topic...

 

the baseless chrisA speculation at this and other sites is actual kinda amusing.  have seen some folks share their guesses as "the only rational explanation."

 

*chuckle*

 

am gonna be a tad disappointed if chrisA decides to share... though that won't stop folks from speculating 'bout his Real motivations.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Good point, however I personally think that under these circumstances there has to be some give and take, I looked forward to the novella but no one at Obsidian could predict Mr Avellone leaving. If the novella is never released i'll not hold it against Obsidian.


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.

If I'm not mistaken, MCA hasn't completed the Wasteland novella either, right?

It was also available separately as an add-on, right?

 

My guess is that it's coming "eventually" so they can avoid any refunds

be careful what you wish for.  insist on completion has chrisA write that the novella protagonist gets drunk and wanders over a cliff ledge whilst looking for a place to relieve himself... and dies.  the end. 

 

HA! Good Fun!

Arcanum, the game so bad Chris Avellone leaves a company to drop his obligation to play it. :lol:

 

But seriously, I'm shocked. He's one of the cornerstones of the company.

 

Actually, I think I remember him asking on FB recently if anyone can give tips about good camera and microphone stuff (or similar), because of him wanting to continue the playthrough at home. Now with the latest news, I am wondering if this is somehow related.

should start a rumor that chrisA is going to bioware to work on a mobile app/game that is, for all intents and purposes, kotor 3.

To add to the speculation: I'd somewhat suspect personal reasons, with a break between jobs, rather than leaving to directly continue with a different company.

 

[edit]

And to add to the general sentiment: Sad to see him leave, Obsidian games probably won't feel the same without his input. I wish MCA all the best in his future endeavours!

Not blind to the possibility, just hard to tell with someone who's always saying that stuff and always only backpedaling when someone calls him out on it. Makes me question when it's sincere or not.

 

 

On topic though, I just wonder when we'll get a statement from Obsidian, where he's going and what he'll be doing.

MCA can now truly follow his bliss.

 

His dream job as a full time walking Kickstarter Stretch Goal.

This actually is bad news for anyone that wants to tempt him into the dark arts of future Kickstarters depending on which company he ends up at next.
