Blitz Games Studios ceases trading after 23 years

175 jobs have today been lost following the sad news that UK development stalwart Blitz Games has ceased trading.

The company, which houses a number of divisions, was founded by the Oliver twins Andrew and Philip in 1990.

In slightly better news, two of the studio’s current projects are said to be financially sustainable and will be continued by the formation of a new company, safeguarding around 50 jobs in the process.
