No, they won't.
I don't like Derek Smart, I'll freely admit that, but I'm certainly not going to take it out on people who like his games. I've never played one of his games so it would be arrogant of me to assume things.
Basically, he wanted the license, he couldn't afford it and Interplay would never have sold it to him anyway because Volition had a first refusal clause on their contract. It's a common story, and wouldn't be very interesting if we hadn't been the ones he was throwing insults at.
