Radical Entertainment, best known for the Prototype series this generation, will no longer develop games and instead will now only support other Activision titles.
“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,” Activison said in a statement released tonight.
“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.”
Radical originally opened it’s doors in 1991. Our thoughts and well wishes go out to those who have been affected by Activision’s decision.
