On Medium.com, Luiga announced that he, a founding member and Secretary of the ZA/UM cultural association, as well as the assembler of most of its core team members, is dissolving the association. Additionally, Luiga notes that these three core members had not been working at ZA/UM since the end of last year and had left the company involuntarily. Furthermore, he asserts that this would be detrimental to fans who are anxiously awaiting the Disco sequel.

As the ZA/UM cultural association is different from the studio ZA/UM that developed Disco Elysium, Luiga stated that it “no longer represents the ethos on which it was founded.”
“People and ideas are meant to be eternal; organizations may well be temporary,” Luiga continued. “I find that the organization was successful overall and most of the mistakes that were made were contingent, determined by the sociocultural conditions we were thrown into. I still encourage people to organize, and I would say that one of the qualities that the ZA/UM cultural organization sorely lacked was pretty much any formal structure. For a while, it was beautiful. My sincerest thanks to all that have rooted for us.”

Luiga appears to place some of the blame in the comments of the post on the investors of ZA/UM while acknowledging that Disco Elysium may not have been possible without them.
“Imagine a kleptomaniac, if you will,” Luiga said. “Only that instead of stealing, say, ‘A Lolly pop,’ they take pains to manipulate dozens of people to steal, in the end, from themselves, just because they happen to be very proficient in that kind of an operation. It’s what they always do, really. One of them was the first guy to be convicted for investment fraud in Estonia. All the same, idk if we would have managed to get the initial investment without these people.”

It may not be the best news for those waiting on the sequel to Disco Elysium, but Luiga wrote on Twitter that “things with the sequel are actually sweet enough, you might even get it the way it was meant, it might take a shit ton of time but RPG fans are sorta accustomed to waiting, ain’t they.”
