April P. dropped me an e-mail today in which she included a short blurb that had been posted on the Middle Earth Vault (a message board):

Subject: MEO Take Down
From: April P.

I just saw this blurb on Middle Earth Vault:

Stephen Joins Visual Concepts

Former MEO Producer Stephen Nichols let us know today that he will has accepted a position at Visual Concepts:

I have recently accepted a job with Visual Concepts in San Rafael California. Visual Concepts is part of the SEGA family and is currently developing several interesting Dreamcast titles.

You may know their two existing Dreamcast titles... NFL2K and NBA2K. I am pleased and excited to bring my skills to bear  for Visual Concepts and SEGA. I'm sure that you will see many great things coming from this company in the future.

Thanks again for your support!

I hope this gives more insight to the loss of MEO.

April P.

So, now we know that the producer of MEO has moved to another project. Yet more evidence that MEO may be gone for good.
