It looks like the long-in-development PC first person shooter called by its code name Project Offset by the development team Offset Software is officially shut down at its home at the PC processor maker Intel. Big Download contacted the the company to get an update on this long-in development project and received this response via email today

Intel purchased Offset Software to improve our game development knowledge-base and to further Intel's visual computing technology development expertise, helping the company offer robust products, support, and tools to customers. With the recent changes in our product roadmap, some of the resources and technologies from the acquisition are being re-applied to help support new graphics related projects. Additionally, other Offset Software team members have moved onto other external projects outside the company.

Very sad. I always had this game in the back of my mind, hoping it would help to revive stuff. Too bad.

Not surprised. Shame for the guys making it though. Would suck to see a project you've worked on so long go.

They probably got better jobs months ago, but we're hearing about it just now. It's sad, but who really expected the game to be released after Intel bought them?

They´ve started a new thing, Fractiv LLC:

Who knows if they have the rights to the tech or the IP though, probably not.

The original owners of Project Offset got what they wanted, cash... I never expected the game to ever be released.

I know. It'll be the best game never released. I can't wait. The next 20 E3s will show us some really cool CG movies.
