A Fond Farewell to Bizarre Creations

Posted by masterbedgood (17 posts) -

Today, February 18, 2011, Activision closes the doors of one of its internal studios, Bizarre Creations.  Bizarre Creations was the studio behind several well-received racing games and arcade titles including Metropolis Street Racer for Dreamcast, the Project Gotham Racing franchise for Microsoft's XBOX systems, the Geometry Wars games (the first of which was introduced as a game within a game in Project Gotham Racing 2), and the recently released Blur.  Activision purchased Bizarre Creations in 2007 and Bizarre is the most recent studio to fall victim to the massive publisher's studio closings and cutbacks.  Thoughts and prayers go out for those who lost their jobs due to the studio's closure and hopefully they can find employment posthaste.
