Studio Head Dan Elggren Leaves CME for Gazillion

Posted Tue, May 12, 2009 by Ethec

From the blog post:

The last 8-9 months have been really rough at Dan's work and we've been trying so hard to make it work. Over 100 employees have left since October, so Dan felt he was as loyal as he possibly could be considering that he was basically volunteering for work and not getting paid! It's such a shame, because the game he's been working on for over 3 years was within several months of being ready to ship! I've admired how hard Dan has fought for his coworkers and for this game. He had been interviewing all over the country when he found this job with Gazillion in Louisville, Colorado. A few of his former coworkers are there now, so that's been a fun connection. We decided that he'd take the job just over a week ago and he begins work there June 1st.

Elggren, who was with the Stargate Worlds team from since when the project went public, is the latest to join the exodus of CME employees leaving the troubled studio since financial troubles were first reported late last year. Gazillion Entertainment couldn't offer any comment on the matter, and Firesky / CME promises an official response soon.
