Video of 4A Games’ Office Spotted, Not As Dramatic As Jason Rubin Presented It

Metro Last Light
Yesterday, we posted our opinion about Jason Rubin’s story regarding 4A Games and the environment this studio has been working on. According to Rubin, ‘4A’s staff sat on folding wedding chairs, literally elbow to elbow at card tables in what looks more like a packed grade school cafeteria than a development studio.’ However, it seems that Rubin exaggerated as 4A Games’ office is… well… fine and not as bad as what Rubin made it look like.

However, most of the company’s assets have been succesfully acquired by other companies, so there is nothing to worry about. Unless of course you’re interested in a new Darksiders 2 as Vigil Games was not sold to anyone and if THQ does not find a seller in the coming months, the studio will most probably close.
