Yesterday, Blacksite: Area 51 designer Harvey Smith said "I believe in personal accountability". Today, he was held accountable for his negative comments and got fired.
The former Dues Ex lead designer admitted yesterday that the whole Blacksite: Area 51 project was "so f**ked up" and revealed that game design was rushed over with almost no time for play testing and refining.
Smith's comments came less than 24 hours before the game's European launch.
Midway-Austin studio head Denise Fulton announced today that Smith departed the studio but declined to comment on the reasons, saying only it was "by mutual agreement between Harvey and the studio."
