Jerry Bruckheimer Games shuts down

The studio closes without releasing a single game

Jerry Bruckheimer Games, the game development studio of film producer Jerry Bruckheimer, has shut down. A Bruckheimer Films representative told GameSpot that the studio was "no longer active". The rep followed that statement with a further confirmation that Jerry Bruckheimer Games was "no longer a functioning entity."

The studio was founded in late 2007 as a partnership between Bruckheimer and MTV Games. Bruckheimer Games was intended to create multiple new IP, hiring Ubisoft senior vice president Jay Cohen and Microsoft executive producer Jim Veevaert to steer production. Veevaert joined Zynga in March of 2012 as the general manager of the Seattle branch, while Jay Cohen remains chairman of The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
