What seems to be a mass exodus from EALA as of late continues with the news that Chris Rubyor, known as Delphi in the community, is leaving EALA for Petroglyph Games
. He plans to work on their current game Star Wars: Empire at War. He sent the following email describing his decision to the community:
Lots of stuff happening these days so I hope I don't catch ya off guard.
Well, I just wanted to let you know that I have resigned from my position as a Game Designer (Red Alert 3) at EALA. It was a tough decision, but one that had to be made.
I enjoyed my two years spent at the company. It gave me the opportunity to work with some great people and make some fun games (Zero Hour and Lord of the Rings: BFME). Sadly, I leave behind more than 10 years of RTS history which includes Westwood Studios and the C&C community. I remain confident that EA will continue to make unique and exciting games within the Command & Conquer universe.
What's in store for the future? I'll be heading back to Las Vegas to join the ranks of some extremely talented game developers and ex-westwoodian friends at Petroglyph. They have some amazing stuff planned and I can't wait to be a part of it.
Take care and stay in touch!
Chris Rubyor (aka Delphi)
Interesting that he slipped the name of the project he was working on in there: Red Alert 3? With the Westwoodians leaving, is there still hope yet?
