so did they give you the same reasoning? That the game is actually cancelled? Or did they say they just aren't offering the pre-order anymore.

While I am hoping it's not true. It does seem weird that Gamestop wouldn't want to take your pre-order money any chance they get.

: ( I didn't assume Trico would die until the end of the game.
Also, how many years in Production? It's a hell of a thing if they don't even have the game in a state they could finish.

Yeah must be pretty bleak if they're doing this. They'll take preorders on anything these days.

It may be a SIGN nevertheless, IE platform shift (It's taking too long! Make it a PS4 title instead!) or something. Of course, GameStop could just want to avoid another Duke Nukem Forever scenario of pre-orders being in the system for forever, so maybe thy're flipping out over this news and canning to be safe.

Of course FFversusXIII is probably more worthy of that reaction anyway.

They didn't fire him. It would be stupid to fire someone and then hire them to work for you as a freelancer.

I can't remember the exact wording but I definitely got a "Say goodbye to last guardian" vibe from the call.

I have no idea why they would be doing it, but I'm not believing it until it's reported on reputable sites with a source that isn't a retail chain.

Lots of people jumping to conclusions too early, I feel.

I was thinking the same thing... There must be some truth because why wouldn't gamestop want to continue to take preorder money...

I'm almost upset... but, it's been so long... I'm not even aware it exists unless rumors pop up about jobs or somebody makes a thread. Off my radar completely. It did look good tho...
