CrunchArcade: Tabula Rasa "a financial disaster" – developers confirm downsizing of Austin studio

Well, that’s kind of an inflammatory headline. But it’s semi-true. The Korean Times has deemed Richard Garriot’s futuristic MMO Tabula Rasa a disaster after its disappointing sales devalued developer NCsoft and cost them millions. A spokesperson for the development team downplayed both the disappointment and the downsizing, noting that MMO staffs normally decline after release, and that revenue is built up over time (the game has yet to be released in MMO stronghold Japan). Points on both sides. Only time will tell who is right, but I think I have a pretty good idea.
