Massively is reporting that they have received a tip from a "credible former Gazillion employee" that told them that most, if not all, Gazillion developers have been let go, that the company has shuttered completely and that the game will cease operations on Friday, November 24th, not on December 31st as indicated in last week's announcement.

According to shared documents including a letter from CEO Dave Dohrmann, creditors forced the shutdown that led to all employees being let go. Corroborated later by former Gazillion Gameplay Engineer Andrew Hair, he also acknowledged players' concerns over refunds but reminded them that those who have been let go were fired without compensation, severance or PTO and that medical insurance will be stopping in just over a week.

We'll keep you posted as the story develops.
