well,although the game was reportedly dogshit,i never like hearing these storiesA:CM devs TimeGate Studios lay off entire staff
Section 8 and Aliens: Colonial Marines developer TimeGate Studios has laid off its entire staff, according to a report.
While i am sure Aliens didn't do them any favours,it seems its more connected to another legal battle
One source claims that the studio has suffered a critical blow in its legal battle against SouthPeak Interactive, who the source says has been granted its request for a bankruptcy judge to convert TimeGate's Chapter 11 case to a liquidation proceeding under Chapter 7, signaling the end of the developer.
The company faced paying $7.35 million in damages and losing the Section 8 license after defeat in its legal clash with SouthPeak.
TimeGate sued the publisher in 2009 when it claimed SouthPeak had withheld royalties and failed to produce localized versions of Section 8 as allegedly agreed. A countersuit from SouthPeak alleged, among other things, that TimeGate hadn't invested enough of its own capital onto the game.
