Intel cancels Project Offset, developers let go.
Intel has cancelled the internally developed fantasy themed first person shooter "Project Offset", the following statement was released by an Intel representative to Big Download.
Intel purchased Offset Software to improve our game development knowledge-base and to further Intel's visual computing technology development expertise, helping the company offer robust products, support, and tools to customers. With the recent changes in our product roadmap, some of the resources and technologies from the acquisition are being re-applied to help support new graphics related projects. Additionally, other Offset Software team members have moved onto other external projects outside the company.
Offset Software was founded in 2004 by ex S2 Games members and announced Project Offset shortly after. Intel acquired the studio in 2008 to develop games that would take advantage of Intel hardware. The founders have since gone on to open Fractiv LLC.
