La Despedida de Ensemble 3


Tiempo estimado de lectura: 2 minutos.

El triste día ha llegado, poco tiempo después del anuncio de que Halo Wars esta en etapa gold (quien iba a saber por esos tiempos del 2006 que este sería el último juego de ensemble) ya sabíamos de antemano lo que venía y fuimos informados de ello. Bruce Shelley el tipo que en su momento nos daba gratas noticias como el anuncio de The Asian Dynasties, el desarrollo de nuevos parches de equilibrio, entre un montón de cosas más fue el encargado de dedicar las últimas palabras por parte del estudio a los jugones y con ella su última entrada en ese glorioso Blog:

 

It is hard to believe that the day has finally come when Ensemble Studios closes its doors and we move on to whatever is next. I was employee #4, starting in February of 1995, and will always be grateful to Tony and Rick Goodman for remembering me and getting me involved in what will probably be the defining experience of my career. There was a genuine caring at ES for colleagues, and the games we made, which was special. The mission of our studio was to create a great place to work and make great games, stressed by Tony in that order. I believe we stayed on mission throughout and often it was a lot of fun. It is worth mentioning that about 60% of the people who worked on Age of Empires I were with the studio to the end. And it was a really special group of people who pulled together for the long hours and hard work to finish our last game to our standards.

We are working our way through the final week with mixed emotions. We have a lot to be proud of and new opportunities are beckoning, but it is also sad to see this particular great adventure coming to an end. Boxes are piled in the hallways for trash; people are giving away games and other stuff they don’t want anymore; computers are being wiped; and our corporate IDs are being turned in. Although we will be keeping in touch through some alumni initiatives, many of us may not cross paths again.

There are at least two new studios being formed by ES employees and I expect both to do very well. There were a lot of outstanding game developers here and it will be interesting to see how and what they do, both individually and as new groups, in the years ahead.

 

Esas son sus palabras en la cual agradece a los jugadores que acompañamos por años a la compañía y finalmente nos dice que dos nuevos estudios se están creando por trabajadores de Ensemble, por nuestra parte esperamos que les vaya de lujo. Uno de esos dos estudios se dedicará a seguir trabajando con Halo Wars, como la creación de parches y nuevos contenidos.

Será que Si? Será que No?

Será que Si? Será que No?

Por mi parte sólo me queda agradecer a Ensemble tantos años de diversión que me brindo con la saga de Age Of Empires que copo casi la mitad de mi vida divirtiendome, estos tipos merecen mucho más sin duda.
