Ghost Recon Commander Cancelled, Lay Offs at Loot Drop
The developer of Ghost Recon Commander announced that the game has been cancelled.
Game developer Brenda Romero, COO and Co-Founder of Loot Drop announced through Facebook just now that Ghost Recon Commander was cancelled.
The team at Loot Drop had been developing Ghost Recon Commander, a turn-based strategy game on Facebook and mobile platforms, for Ubisoft. The game was developed as a tie-in for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, and allowed players to lead a squad of Ghosts and deploy them in missions to attain upgrades and gear for use in both Ghost Recon Commander and unlock gear in Future Soldier.
Romero says that as a result of the cancellation, the studio had to lay off a team of developers, many of whom are now looking for work.
"If you have any need for coders, artists, an amazing assistant designer or the best QA guy I've worked with, please ping me," wrote Romero on her Facebook page. "I worked with these people to ship a game under tight deadlines, and will gladly recommend all of them."
Many other developers, including PopCap and Obsidian have since responded to the request. If you're a game developer in search of new talent, you should head on over to her Facebook page and fire off a request.
