Is he having a panic attack over Lumberyard?

What does your heart tell you? :emot-lol:
Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

Its fine, CI will save Amazon like PC gaming, by selling their cool MMO tech to Amazon ;)
Server smashing tech will save all Amazon projects.

Derek just tweeted about LumberYard's discontinuation. However he hasn't linked any website in his tweet stating more to come.

Derek: "BREAKING NEWS! Amazon's Lumberyard engine - for all intent and purposes - is history."
John van der Burg (Animation Systems Tech Lead at Amazon): "You know more than me if that is true :)"
Derek: "You guys on the inside are almost always the last to know - anything because when it comes to exec level decisions most of you don't matter because those decisions are usually above your pay grade. It's dead. Whether it's used internally or not is irrelevant - and nobody cares."

I was reading it before and it's awesome. The exchange was longer but I can't find those tweets now, maybe some got deleted? or I saw them in other thread, I'm not sure.

P.S. I've just joined this forum but I've been lurking for years. I work in software development and Star Citizen project is just awesome, in the sense of teaching us all how not to do things (if your objective is to deliver a product, I mean, because if your objective is just to get people to pay you millions then they have done it right).

Problem is with that tweet is that there are no stories or official announcements about LumberYard being shitcanned. Derek won't cite where he got the information.
If it's an inside source within CIG who just got the news from their superior then sure, Derek wouldn't disclose them for fear of litigation.

BTW, does anyone find it funny that anonymous devs at Amazon who state that LumberYard wasn't made for multiplayer games yet the shillizens chant "Server side OCS" and "Server meshing" as part of their hymn to solve serious network issues?
If that were the case aren't CIG bound by licence to share that tech with Amazon? Amazon shouldn't be "driving a train while laying the track" if CIG had shared their jesus patches with them.

I got it from several sources at Amazon. One of them is one of the sources that leaked this to the media during E3.
