Here's another take on the A-10 cancellation, this time from AVault. Anyway, the interesting thing here is that this one says that Andy Hollis is going within EA, NOT with Origin... perhaps he won't be overseeing Privateer Online after all?
Origin Systems is moving forward with its strategy of solely developing Internet-only worlds. The success of Ultima Online has proven that there is massive potential in the area of Internet entertainment. In order to expedite this transition, Origin today announced it has canceled Jane's A-10 Warthog, a game that was in development at the company's Austin, Texas studio.
Origin plans to relocate the members of the team to the many opportunities within both Origin and its parent company, Electronic Arts. Andy Hollis, an Origin vice president and executive producer of the cancelled project, plans to remain with the EA family and is currently considering a variety of opportunities within the organization.
