Vivendi Universal shuts down Sierra ...

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

After almost 30 years of top notch games, solely responsible for publishing and distrubuting games like Ground Control II and the Half-Life series, the parent company of Sierra Studios (Vivendi Universal) has decided pull the plug on the company. It seems Half-Life and its ever-lasting awe and amazement was not enough to keep this veteran game company alive. When Vivendi Universal was asked about the shut down move, they commented:
    "Restructuring the organization and reducing our cost base are necessary to improve our operating effectiveness and profitability," said VU Games CEO Bruce Hack, in as terse a manner as possible. "This constitutes another important step in our turnaround plan aimed to better position the company for growth."
What will this mean to Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike on Source? Right now its all on VALVe's shoulders to pick up the pieces and keep working. Hopefully this won't disrupte the development too much. Our world works in ways in which we do not always appriciate.
