The Reasons Why Activision Shuttered Radical Entertainment

The Reasons Why Activision Shuttered Radical Entertainment

It’s happening fast, but Activision has delivered a message making plain why it had to close the doors of Radical Entertainment. Find the statement below.

“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.”

We’ll be pray for those who lost their jobs. Sad news.

    If games don’t sell companies are going to close the studios. I bet more game studios will be closing.
