    With those sorts of titles on the way there must be plenty of companies interested. I hope Timesplitters 4 is as good as the other 3, 75% of the workforce fired doesn't fill me with hope on that front though.

    if the 25% left work 4x harder, then we'll be alright

    Well, Haze was pretty much a joke so maybe for the best. there'll be new companies, anyway, I'm sure they'll find jobs elsewhere

    Maybe I'm showing my age but lets not forget that many of the Free Radical directors are ex Rare/Golden Eye developers. And are therefore immortal.

    Long live the N64
