Possible scandal? Whatever it is, it won't do SC's development any favours.

Cloud Imperium Games, the studio behind the $90 million Star Citizen project, is threatening to litigate over an inflammatory article published by The Escapist this week. The article accuses Cloud Imperium founder and CEO Chris Roberts of embezzlement and the company of illegal hiring practices. Original Story (October 4, 2015, at 2:26 p.m. Central)

I read the original article and CR's response. It just looks like Derek Smart trying to cause yet more shit because it's the only way he can remain noticeable in the industry these days since the mess of BC3000AD plus a couple of ex-employees who weren't happy with the way Roberts ran things.

I particularly liked Roberts response to the criticism that he should be listening to the industry people who'd been working while he was off on his "no game development break" more. To paraphrase it boiled down to:

"You want me to listen to people who were there and in charge during the decline of PC gaming, who said space games were a pointless dead end and waste of money, and that console and mobile gaming were the only logical places to develop games any more? Fuck that."
