I should be four plates into the buffet at the Bellagio right now but I just wanted to clarify something. Numerous news stories emerged today about the studio I work at. Much to my chagrin, many of them are stating that Black Box is closing down and we’re all laid off. This is not true. While there maybe layoffs for some teams, the studio is simply moving to Burnaby. I’ll have a lot more to write about that later.
Black Box will still exist as an entity within the EA Games label. We will be sharing space with EA Canada which are under the EA Sports label (for the most part). I will still continue to work on the #1 skateboarding game franchise in the industry… unless I get laid off… which I don’t think will happen.
