Hi-Rez: "None of us felt good" About What Happened To Tribes: Ascend
Sometimes, game companies need to make painful decisions. In a brief interview with PCGamer at TwitchCon, Hi-Rez Studios President Stewart Chisam expressed happiness that the company was restarting work on Tribes: Ascend, but was realistic about the game's prospects.
"None of us felt good about the state it was left in," Chisam said while confirming that SMITE had taken up much of the company's bandwidth. But even with the new development going on, Tribes: Ascend is more of a "passion project" that Hi-Rez doesn't think it'll ever make money from.
"[We have] four or five people working on Tribes full time, and I'd love to keep that team around for a while ... It's starting to feel more like the old Tribes games."
