We received a rather inflammatory anonymous tip about Trion World Networks and the current state of the company, but the only piece we feel comfortable in sharing is that President and Chief Creative Officer Jon Van Canegham has been let go from the company. We followed up and an official representative for the MMO publisher informed us that Canegham has "transitioned out" and no longer has "any operational responsibilities" -- his creative and operational roles have been distributed among the senior team. Find the full statement after the break.
On paper, Trion World Networks is doing quite well, having raised $100 million in capital
and announcing this week that it has joined the ESA
. The company will allegedly show its first title at E3, but that's just "rumor and speculation" for now.
