Activision: Prototype 2 did not find “broad commercial audience”; studio closed
Activision has closed the studio that developed Prototype 2, and the reason for closure is simple – the game didn’t sell as per their expectations.
“Hi everyone. Yes, there’s some unfortunate news to share today. This morning Radical Entertainment went through a significant reduction in staff. We’re very proud of what we achieved with the Prototype franchise, but unfortunately, the Blacklight virus didn’t spread as far as it could,” Radical Entertainment posted this statement on their Facebook page.
They mentioned that the PC version of the game is on track to meet the release date.
“For PC gamers, rest assured that the PC version of Prototype 2 is still going to launch on July 24th as planned. And a special ‘thanks’ to the Prototype Army and all our extremely loyal and passionate fans for supporting Radical Entertainment. We couldn’t have come this far without you.”
