We're sad that we've come this far with someone we admired so much — someone who inspired us to reach higher, then told us we'd fail, started a competitor, and then sued us when we started making meaningful progress toward OpenAI's mission without him.

The company wrote in a blog post co-authored by several OpenAI founders, including Altman, Brockman, and Ilya Sutskever.
