Best known for his works in Fallout Series, the Old Republic 2, and Jedi: Fallen Order, Chris Avellone is now dropped from Techland’s Dying Light 2 Project.
The statement was released by Techland themselves on Twitter. Chris had many allegations against him for sexual harassment.
“We treat matters of sexual harassment and disrespect with utmost care, and have no tolerance for such behaviours – it applies to both our employees as well as external consultants, Chris among them,” Techland wrote. “This is why, together with Chris Avellane, we’ve decided to end our cooperation.”
Avellone was also working with Vampire: The Masquer – Bloodlines 2’s. Well not anymore, because Paradox Interactive has just released a statement that says he is dropped and none of his content produced will be ever used.
Apart from these two companies, Avellone had also worked with Spanish Developer Gato Studio. Avellone helped them in the project of RPG The Waylanders. Now, Gato Studio has come forward and announced that they will cut ties with him.
“Studio Gato Salvaje and The Waylanders Team take matters of abusive and predatory behavior very seriously, and we have stand against the kind of behaviour that was alleged to have happening in the stories shared over the weekend”
The Main Problem is now being faced by Techland because Avellone was playing a vital role in the development of Dying Light 2. Now that, he is gone and the game has already been delayed indefinitely. We will see more than usual delay time to get hands-on Dying Light 2. Not to mention, Avellone himself gave the briefing of Dying Light 2 in Xbox’s E3 2018.
“Unfortunately we need more development time to fulfil our vision”, Techland CEO Pawe? Marchewka explained. “We will have more details to share in the coming months, and will get back to you as soon as we have more information.”
