We'll probably be seeing lots about Gazillion's and Marvel Heroes' abrupt shutdown over the next few weeks, much of it coming from former employees who are now free to talk about the experience with whomever they like.
One such employee, Systems Designer Anthony Gallegos, got on the Kinda Funny Games show and discussed matters with host Greg Miller. His interview starts at about the five-minute mark of the video below and Gallegos reveals that:
Gallegos stresses that "this isn't a Disney's the bad guy thing" and that "There were obligations that Gazillion had in this contract and something must have not worked out, and so Marvel pulled the plug. It's just business. I'm sure there was something like, 'If you don't do this, then we just pull the plug.'"
That brings us back to the question of whether the accusations against Gazillion CEO David Dohrmann carried some weight. If so, one of the major sticking points Disney -- which paints itself as a family-friendly company -- had to renew the contract could have been that Dohrmann be removed. In that scenario, if he wouldn't budge, then ... well, maybe we saw what happened.
