The Saboteur goes gold after Pandemic’s no good, very bad week
EA may have pink-slipped 200 Pandemic staffers last week, but true to its word, The Saboteur escaped from the carnage relatively unscathed. And now, according to a post on Pandemic’s community site, the game has gone gold – just in time for its launch next month.
“I am very proud to communicate today that The Saboteur has officially gone ‘GOLD’ on all 3 planned platforms (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 & PC). This has been a very difficult week for Pandemic Studios, but does not change the fact that a team of amazing people worked very hard to make The Saboteur a great game that fans will be able to enjoy this holiday season,” said former Pandemician “sledgehammer70.”
On the bright side, this sadly orphaned game is looking great. Sure, it may not be the greatest thing ever to result from the loss of one’s parentage (that’d be Batman), but as far as videogames go, we think The Saboteur’s a pretty sure bet.
