Ghost Recon Commander, the Facebook incarnation of Ubisoft’s shooter series, has been cancelled, with developer Loot Drop given little option but to lay off staff.
The news was revealed by Brenda Romero, developer of the Wizardry series and now wife to Doom creator John Romero, on Twitter. “Sad news,” she wrote. “Today, Ghost Recon Commander was cancelled. As a result, we laid off a team of kick-ass developers. If you have openings, ping me.”
Not many industry execs can lay claim to the coining of a gaming term, since most of the words and phrases used in discussion of the pastime were born in the community.
Ubisoft has big plans for the Ghost Recon series in 2012: Future Soldier for consoles and PC is weeks away from release, while Ghost Recon Online launches for PC next month and Wii U later in the year.
Loot Drop, the social gaming studio founded by Doom creator John Romero and his wife-to-be Brenda Brathwaite, has been revealed as the developer of Ubisoft's Ghost Recon Commander.
