This story managed to slip through the cracks earlier; Vivendi Universal - in the middle of restructuring - last week shut down Counter-Strike: Condition Zero publisher Sierra Entertainment
and laid off all employees. The Sierra brand will live on in name only and all the projects assigned to Sierra have already been given to other teams within Vivendi. You can get the full scoop on this whole thing over here at CNN Money
. We would like to wish the folks out at Sierra the best of luck for their future endeavours.
