Bizarre Creations to be sold/closed by Activision

November 17, 2010

Yesterday news surfaced that Activision was looking to close Bizarre Creations, developers of such games as Blur, Project Gotham Racing, Geometry Wars, and the just released 007: Bloodstone. Activision announced that they planned on either closing or selling Bizarre Creations in the next 90 days due to lack of sales from Blur.

Today, more news surfaced that will appease the fears of many gamers, as it appears a number of publishers, Microsoft among them, may be interested in purchasing Bizarre Creations from Activision. It is hoped that they do get purchased rather than closed, as they have been a well respected and successful development studio for over a decade.
