Prototype Developer Radical Entertainment Closes Its Doors

Radical Entertainment, the guys behind the Prototype franchise, The Simpsons: Hit and Run and Scarface: The World is Yours is to close its doors. The Activision owned company will still be around for a supporting role on other Activision projects but they will no longer be developing its on games from now on. A Statement to Kotaku reads:

“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.

“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.”
