That's a (partial) transcript of the podcast the OP linked. Also I already linked that in my first post, but it was easy to miss.
Anyway, another big Ritual departure.
Tom Mustaine was who they were trying to contact on the podcast, guess it makes sense that he wouldn't be too keen to talk about the place he was leaving.
Still bad news though, I can't recall a game studio that hemorrhaged employees like this and ended up producing something good - or even surviving for very long.
Last, but not least, Michael Russell has commented (sort of) on the rumors on his blog
. It's an interesting post, it sounds at once both good and bad regarding the future of Sin.
