Activision recommends Bizarre Creations studio closure

Activision has recommended that the games studio behind Project Gotham Racing and Blur, Bizarre Creations, should close.

Speaking to Develop, Coddy Johnson, Activision Worldwide Studios’ chief operating officer, said: I want to be clear, our first choice was to try and keep this group together and find a buyer for the studio. This decision comes after a few months of exhausted examination of a number of different options across the board.”

He continued: “We of course care about this team. We’re offering the studio as many resources as possible, including counselling, external placement services and external career fairs.”

It’s thought that approximately 200 staff will lose their jobs.
