Is this solely referring to the NA team or is it referring to AGE as a whole? If it's the NA team, that's fine since they are doing a spectacular job as of right now, and yes that's sarcasm. If it's AGE as a whole, then who exactly is telling the truth? Also, is the stance on the very few games managed by the NA office basically #NotMyProblemAnymore now?
Everything is getting switched to EU in regards to platform and browser. New GMs, new PMs, you name it, it will be handled by the EU office as I understand it. The only thing running from the Cali office as far as I can tell, will be MOBILE games.
It's never pleasant for anyone to have their position in a company passed to someone else, to have to update and train a new person to take that job from them. So I won't be giving any of these folks hassles when they are watching just that happen to them. It is understandable how they would feel their hands are now tied with wanting to maybe be able to do things for the games they work on, but not being able to due to the changeovers. It is a situation that is beyond anyone's control really aside from maybe very upper management in the new company that is acquiring it all.
It is not necessarily that their attitude is now "Not my problem anymore", but it is not their job anymore after a certain point in time that is coming up.
It's never a pleasant thing to happen, I certainly wouldn't try to make someone feel bad about their job being lost. In short, these people being replaced have my sympathies, and I wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.
