Activision has formally announced that Prototype 2 developer Radical Entertainment will no longer develop its own games and will undergo deep staff cuts in order to be reduced to a support studio.
Here’s the official statement from Activision:
“Although we made a substantial investment in the Prototype IP, it did not find a broad commercial audience.
“Radical is a very talented team of developers, however, we have explored various options for the studio, including a potential sale of the business, and have made a difficult conclusion through the consultation process that the only remaining option is a significant reduction in staff.
“As such, some employees will remain working for Radical Entertainment supporting other existing Activision Publishing projects, but the studio will cease development of its own games going forward.”
Our thoughts go out to all affected.
