If you read the article, the company was already in deep shit before making the game, and making the game was just a quick way to get funds to pay debts. The company also took Razer funding to pay for another game developed for Tencent. Razer CEO suing now. Doubt he can get anything though. BTW it's not Razer involved but the fella himself, setup new company under his own name Min Productions.

The boss took on too much in too short a time. Maybe he left Blizzard under unfavourable circumstances, then thought he could do better. Maybe he was with the Heroes team then got booted. Afterall he tried to do TWO mobas...
