    The locks were changed yesterday, and security is outside the offices not letting people in.

    Is this finally goodbye to FRD?

    Good luck to everyone there. Shit time of year for it :(

    no wonder if you don't turn up to work until gone 11!

    but seriously, is this true? if so that's terrible news, what about Time Splitters 4? I'd have imagined it was quite far along in development by now. And didn't you just nab the Starwars Clone Wars licence?

    (can you imagine LucasArts HQ - hey, that time splitters game has the same art style as our kids show, are you thinking what I'm thinking?? $ $)

    Shocking indeed. My source? The people at the Holiday Inn next door to the offices just wanting to know why they've been locked out...

    saw the answers too late.

    but is that normal? you lock people out, without at least informing them at least at the door?????

    sounds brutal........

    Sounds to me like the landlords have repossessed the offices due to lack of payment.

    Bollocks.

    Battlefront 3 was being made by them.

    They were struggling to get Haze out the door, so it wouldn't surprise me if this new is true.

    Let's not make this about the blame-game, people. It's not about who lead what project, who embezzled what or anything like that. Solidarity, brothers!

    THIS SPACE FOR RENT

    +1

    Although I wouldn't be surprised if this was the first the staff got wind of it.

    Sucks. Timesplitters 3 and Second Sight were two of my fave last-gen games. :(

    Who is blaming who? FRD was/is one of the best developers this country has. Despite the mistakes with Haze they were still miles ahead of everyone else in terms of mixing gameplay and fun.
