Fuckin' Activision. I hope Microsoft or maybe even Sony picks up the ex-employee's.

I think this is going to make PGR5 real awkward when that comes out, since its being developed by Turn 10. I kind of blame the sales of PGR4 somewhat on the fact that Forza 2 was delayed by a year and ended up resulting in it coming out only a handful of months before PGR4.

Lets hope Bizzare Creations will get picked by another publisher. God knows nintendo could use some good first party talent.

it's sad that a developer at the top of it's game had to go.

What a pointless waste of a good thing.

When i bought my first Xbox 360 in 2005 PGR3 was one of my first games for the system.. I don't usually play racing games, but god damn was PGR3 good! 
 
Farewell Bizzare Creations, you will be dearly missed.

Loving the slow but sure open contempt for Activision from the gaming press.

Going through the list of games they developed, I own no less than seven games by Bizarre Creations. I think I'll go home tonight, pop my Fatal Rewind cart in and enjoy it all over again as a tip of the hat to an awesome developer that didn't deserve to get cut off at the knees.

Eh. Lots of people lose their jobs all the time. Not going to waste my time feeling sad for all of them all the time. May as well put a bullet in my head because I would be fucking depressed, also that video sucked.

Sad news, hopefully other European devs will snap up these super talented people. 
 
P.S I fucking love Claire de Lune.

sad. no hope for a geometry wars 3 now. 
 
Thanks for the good times!

It is a sad day for Bizarre and a sad day for Bizarre fans. At least they still own the Geometry Wars IP. Hopefully the community stays around on Blur. I still put that one in every once in a while.  
 
I will pour one out tonight when I go home.

Blur on the PC wasn't a buggy useless mess that barely ran properly. The Club wasn't more or less ignored entirely by everyone and Bloodstone wasn't ignored either. We can blame Activision all night long but at the end of the day, Bizarre Creations signed on the dotted line and most people skipped over what they released.

Man I really did love Activision growing up. They did wonders on the C-64 but holy hell, what have they turned into. It seems they're as cold as they come. Such a bummer.

Thanks for the memories, Bizarre Creations.

#220 Posted by TheHT (11155 posts) -

Holy smokes, they've been around for a good long while.

#221 Posted by MajorToms (366 posts) -

I hope they stick together and do digital releases. Activision eats up talent, but the digital download era brings new possibilities for small developers without publishing backing. Let's hope they move on together.

#223 Posted by AxleBro (798 posts) -

Well, can't say that I liked any of their games, so . . .
