Bizarre Creations close their doors

Bizarre Creations, the devs behind Project Gotham, have shut their doors today ending a seventeen year streak in game development. They come to a close with a rather touching video seen above.

The company began in 1994 but have hung in the balance since last november. Activision have since cloased down Bizarre Creations having been unable to find them a buyer. We wish the best for all affected by the closure and will mourn by playing their classic games such as Blur and Geometry Wars.

Farewell Bizarre…it’s been an absolute pleasure! from Eamon Urtone on Vimeo.

Thanks to CVG for the info.

    You know it’s a shame that activision has to be THIS greedy. Blur was a good SOLID game. many people enjoyed it, i being one of them. I never got hands on with project gotham, but i did see it in action through other people playing and it was an above average game. but hey guess what, it’s not COD lol that’s a damn shame. What are they going to be known for nowadays? no guitar hero, no dj hero, they published an okay spiderman 3 game. but what!!!???? Aqua Out!!!

      yeah, but if this keep happening all the small/indie developers will be gone and all we’ll get is sequel after sequel. we need new IPs!

    True you a valid point but i dont think this is going to keep happening we just have to keep out heads high .. but there wil always be small companies willing to rise to the challenge.
