"I can only speak for myself but if 50% of my dev team stand up at an all hands and proclaim the current project un-salvageable I have to think things as we know it would come to a screeching halt. Hell if 5 people of the dev team say that then I am thinking there is something HORRIFICALLY wrong."

I know nothing about vanguard. Besides being shut down, what's the problem here?

I do not. I feel like this should be something I know now, and am ashamed.

The studio behind Kingdoms of Amalur went bankrupt and is currently being investigated by authorities for misappropriation of funds (specifically tax funds) given to them by the state of Rhode Island to make their game. They ended up releasing an unfinished game in the hopes that it would sell at least 3+ million copies to cover their budget (sold less than 1 million). Curt Schilling was behind that.

Reading his post in regards to Vanguard, another game that had similar problems, I just thought his words were kind of ironic. Curt posted this back in 2008, and the whole Amalur fiasco happened just last year (but we still occasionally see news about it on Gamespot).
