38 Studios a final goodbye.

Not even a day after the bad news of the BioWare/SWTOR layoffs came even worse news this time it's a sudden (unexpected) shutdown of an entire company.

A few very good posts have allready been made about this and i think Keen and Graev worded it perfect:
Quote: "Following games closely and being so excited for something, just to have it shut down at a moment’s notice, is the hardest part of being such eager gaming enthusiasts.  Such potential for something fresh or new is destroyed, but we’ll continue to see a new Call of Duty game released every year and a horrible MMO will see the light of day simply because it has a huge publisher.  So frustrating."
 One can't help but wonder what the hell went on on the business side of 38 studios to "run out of money" so suddenly to be closed down like that and i can't help but feel bad for those working so hard on the game, it must be very frustrating to know that now all your hard work will probably not see the light of day now.

I absolutely had my eyes on 38 studios or rather on Project Copernicus.
I did like Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning quite a bit and am definitely not done playing and was quite curious to see what this franchise would turn into, well i guess we now know...
