Another ‘core’ Facebook game bites the dust…
Ubisoft has cancelled development of the isometric Facebook shooter, Ghost Recon: Commander. The effort from little known studio Loot Drop was designed to appeal to core gamers and has been in open beta since April this year, but it appears it wasn’t doing well enough to sustain its development.
“Sad news. Today, Ghost Recon Commander was cancelled. As a result, we laid off a team of kick-ass developers. If you have openings, ping me,” revealed the co-founder of Loot Drop, Brenda Romero via Twitter.
“We still have two projects in the works (one live), and another in design. Right now, I care about the people we had to lay off,” Romero added.
Loot Drop was founded by John and Brenda Romero in November 2010 and even though the company is committed to producing commonly disposable social games, it’s good to know the studio will survive this blow with more projects already in the works.
