Friday sees closure of Bizarre Creations
Liverpool studio winding down this week
Bizarre Studios, the Liverpool developer which was announced to be closing by Activsion last month, is finally terminating business on Friday 18 February.
The studio, which turned out titles like Geometry Wars, Project Gotham and Blur over the course of its history, was recommended for closure by Activision in January following unsuccessful attempts to find a buyer.
At one point, the developer had employed around 200 staff, but layoffs and rumours of closure began to surface in November, 2010 following poor sales of Blur and the James Bond licence 007: Bloodstone.
Whilst other studios have been looking at Bizarre staff for recruitment, so far no new studios have been formed by former employees of the company.
