Yesterday, David Jaffe announced on the NeoGaf forums that Calling all Cars! was delayed
). The general reaction on the Internet to the announcement was disappointment mingled with acknowledgment that fixing bugs is a worthy reason for a delay. Some people took it better than others though and when our parent site Joystiq compared Jaffe to "a little girl struggling to keep her favorite doll out of the garage sale bin
," they clearly hit a nerve on the outspoken developer.
Though he didn't specifically call out the Joystiq post as the one that pushed him over the edge, Jaffe posted another one of his infamous rants in which he expressed his ... strong dissatisfaction with a certain 'unnamed' website
and declared that he is going to stop blogging:
"I'm going to go dark. My stylings have upset some folks within the biz I care very much about and that I can not live with"
Personally, I'll miss his blog
but he's such a volatile guy that maybe some time out of the limelight will be good for him. According to Jaffe, we can expect to hear from him next in July when he announces details on his next PSN title - or until somebody gets him drunk on camera
