Rumor: Makers Of Halo Wars Doors To Close After Release
Rumor has that Ensemble Studios will close after the release of Halo Wars for the Xbox 360 which is scheduled to release in 2009. Ensemble Studios is owned by Microsoft
Shacknews caught wind of this due to multiple independent reports that they have been receiving. Employees not working on Halo Wars have been laid off today. Those currently working on Halo Wars have been offered to stay on the project until completion.
I don’t know what this means for Halo Wars since employees can leave the project at anytime it seems.
This is a rumor for now but I hope it doesn’t hinder progress of Halo Wars which is looking pretty good if it turns out to be true.
