Well, the good news is that we had many parties bidding on EE. The auction for it ended today and the winner is a company most or all of you have heard of. I can't tell you who it is yet, and you can take whatever your first five guesses are and throw them out, as it's not any of them. I can't release who it is until the contract is completed and signed (another week at least), but in the meantime the game and forums will be here and all the free stuff in the cash shop will remain free for the short-term future.
There's a good chance that existing (or recently laid off, rather) SPM folks will be involved in the game again too! I'm probably going to do some consulting work for the company, and they want the help of other SPM staff members too I think. The caveat is that all is still kind of uncertain. They moved astonishingly quickly for a company their size, and even they don't quite know what they're going to do with EE and the engine yet. They need a few days to process and figure things out.
Anyway, that's the news for now. I'm pretty happy this company won the bidding, as I think they have the resources and the pre-existing audience to help make EE a success.
