Doom! DOOM! Okay, maybe not.
As reported by Kotaku, the Angry Gamer website began spreading rumors the other day that Fury developer Auran was expecting massive lay-offs and possibly shutting the game down in the US and Europe (but not China). However, Tony Hillman, CEO of Auran, published a statement which claimed that such rumors were "greatly exaggerated" and that the removal of the QA staff members was intended to create a smaller, more agile team.
So the rumour mill got a number of things right or close to it, and I am happy to be able to add a little more detail. As they say in the classics, the death of Auran and FURY has been greatly exaggerated.
