Harvey Smith Is A Lone Ranger

Blimey, it's been a busy day for videogame gossip. And there's more.

As you probably already heard, Harvey Smith has left Midway a couple of days after his rather ineloquent comments about BlackSite: Area 51. His infamous "so fucked up" speech really did sound like the last thing anyone gets to say when representing a company. And indeed, it was.

After his tribute to Gerald Ratner questions were asked about how likely Smith would be to stay on to develop BlackSite 2. But then the explanation was given that his job had come to an end before the words were uttered.

Not so, say Shacknews, accompanied by an "allegedly". The site is reporting that he was still on the payroll at the time. According to their source,

A Midway executive allegedly referred to Smith's talk as "his public resignation."

Mr Smith, we have a suggestion. We've heard rumblings that there's a new project going on at Eidos Montreal, for a game you might recognise. And come on, Montreal's far lovelier than Austin. Go on. Goooooo on.
