Bizarre Creations to close down

Posted By | On 20th, Jan. 2011

Activision has issued a recommendation to Bizarre Creation to shut down, following their inability to find a buyer for the studio. The studio has accepted the proposal of their parent company to close down. The Liverpool-based studio has made games like Project Gotham Racing and Blur in the past.

Coddy Johnson, Activision Worldwide Studios’ chief operating officer, said that the company had “looked at all options” before recommending to close the group.

“I want to be clear, our first choice was to try and keep this group together and find a buyer for the studio,” he told Develop. “This decision comes after a few months of exhausted examination of a number of different options across the board.”

“We of course care about this team. We’re offering the studio as many resources as possible, including counseling, external placement services and external career fairs,” he added.

This marks the closure of another talented studio. Sad day.
