    Tags: Colin McComb; Larian Studios

    Six days after announcing his departure from inXile, Colin McComb reveals that he too has been hired by Larian Studios, where he'll be joining fellow Torment: Tides of Numenera writer Gavin Jurgens-Fyhrie.


    What started as a story about possible trouble at inXile increasingly looks like it's actually a story about Larian, who also recently hired Rock Paper Shotgun's RPG writer Adam Smith. What are those crazy Belgians up to? Unfortunately, it sounds like it might be a while before we find out.

    Sinking ship, rattus rattus, etc etc.

    The weird thing isn't that Sven is doing a CD project red with all his Divinity millions, it's that he's doing it in not Eastern Europe.

    That's what Larian's St. Petersburg office is for. But if you're hiring designers/writers, you want them to speak English. Swen is doing that in the cheapest way possible by working in Ireland (I wonder if Colin moves there too).

    It seems Swen is steadily building up Larian's prestige, money no object.

    I'm sure he'll fit in well.

    What Larian needs is fewer writers, not more.

    With this amount of hiring, fair guess that this will be the point where Larian begins working on more than one RPG at at a time. And "a project I wanted to work on" sounds like something non-Divinity.

    "Looking quite good"

    So much enthusiasm from someone who worked on the project.

    Translated it pretty much means "it's not falling apart, it might get released".
