Activision to close Bizarre Creations

Activision unfortunately has announced that Bizarre Creations, Responsible for the recent 007: Blood Stone and Blur will close later this year. The decision was taken due to the low success of the last public work of the English team .

Bizarre Creations Founded in '96 and purchased by Activision in 2007, has earned over time a small group of enthusiasts with a very arcade approach, have developed  several titles including formula 1, the series Project Gotham Racing exclusive Xbox and Geometry Wars.

Activision Worldwide Studios COO said "I want to be clear, our first choice was to try and keep this group together and find a buyer for the studio. 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 counselling, external placement services and external career fairs," he added. Johnson said the recommendation of the studio's closure is "a last resort."

A pity that their race has ended this way.
