No where has Defender retracted parts that pertain to facts known, some of which were known before this embarrassing affair.
1) Kamikaze and Criminal own MWLL, work for Crytek and don't currently contribute to the development of MWLL in a hands on capacity.
2) Russ had a conversation, (Russ's own words) with them. He expressed a wish for a single project, his project.
3) Kamikaze and Criminal shut down development of MWLL of their own accord.
4) Some devs actually working on MWLL would like to continue to do so but can't due to the wishes of the legal owners.
These are established IMO and nothing about these points has been retracted or countered. Indeed Russ's (?) statement reinforces these points. A lot else follows from accepting these four points as 'true' statements. I won't go into them here .
So congratulations, you've now established that:
1.) PGI employees like their own game (because clearly that makes them evil), and like to have casual conversations about other projects going on, conversations that Defender himself described as overall being "supportive", something I note you've conveniently left out
2.) Kamakazi and Criminal, for reasons not really known, decided to shut down their own project (as if that was ever in dispute).
I'm glad we've managed to establish nothing incriminating that indicates anyone doing anything that they could be blamed for, except the two lead developers of MW:LL. Maybe now you'll go bother them.
Really, I like how the one question you guys haven't managed to answer thus far is "what are you accomplishing". What are you even doing here, in this thread, and for that matter, as members of this forum? Do you expect MWLL to come back if you whine and moan enough, and throw misdirected anger out over the wilder assumptions you make regarding a hole-ridden and often-inconsistent mixture of facts and hearsay? No? See my first question.
Clearly this is why my explanation makes more sense
