So as I mentioned in the "Layoffs at EA today" thread... I'd sent an email to Todd on Wed. & here's the reply:

Haha good to hear from you Nick! Thanks for the concern but I'm definitely still an EA employee. :)

I apologize for disappearing from the community, with the new consoles coming out this year we were advised to limit our engagement with community members unless it was absolutely critical. Security was REALLY tight for the past year or so. Given how close I was with all of you I figured it was best I don't tempt fate. Lol.

Glad to hear you are still doing well, things are starting to lighten up now that the consoles and launch games have been announced so I will check if its okay for me to drop in on one of your events.

You just have to promise to not ask me anything confidential. ;)

Cheers,
Todd

I would love a few chances to talk to Todd.

Oh well.

Awesome to know he is fine though, not because i expect him to make another ssx, but because he shouldnt get laid off after the excellent job he did with this game.

i'd be really stoked if they're even conceiving the idea of another SSX game and it's great to hear that Todd survived the layoffs :D

Yeah, I'm happy he is doing well. I understand that the current conditions in the game industry requires a certain level of secrecy.

Just bring us a new SSX within a reasonable amount of time.

Great news! I'm reading into that that a new SSX game IS somewhere in (probably early) gestation since he was open with us last year that they currently weren't working on anything back then.

Actually, they are currently working on a 3rd person shooter, based on reports during E3.

Someone just needs to make a "isbattyalive.com" site, where he's required to checkin daily.

If he checks in within 24 hours, it says "Yes!"
If he checks in 24-48 hours, it says "Probably".
2 days to 7 days "Maybe".
Anything over a week is "Probably Not :("

(Side note, I found this amusing Single-Serving Website http://defiantdog.com/)

Yeah but the EA Vancouver studio has over 1000 employees forming multiple teams working on lots of different games in various stages of development.

Remember it was a relatively small team within EA Vancouver that made SSX 2012
