Come on, MS. Set up Pumpkinhead Studios - you know it's the right thing to do.

Good luck to every single person who worked there, I hope they can all get new jobs soon and be able to put their great talent to use in the future, they deserved much better than this.

And after digging through my cupboards yesterday I found my copy of MSR and I'll take it for another spin today, after I find my Dreamcast!

Farewell.

Gutted for everyone @ Bizarre! no more PGR! :( Good luck to all that worked there. I'm sure you will all get picked up by another developer! RIP!

:lol:

I hope MS have been in talks with some of Bizarre's staff from the moment their closure was announced, in order to get them working on PGR5.

Farewell, Bizarre. You've made my gaming very enjoyable over the years. F1, Fur Fighters, MSR/PGR series and blur.

I'm gonna miss games from this company, because of a p**s poor management by Activision. Thanks Activision, for destroying one of the UK's most valued developers. Go f**k your CoD series, WoW etc. You greedy bastards!!

Please Microsoft, hire the team from Bizarre and create a better studio from within them.

I'm actually reasonably serious about that studio name!

So long Bizarre Creations, best wishes to all those affected during the closure. May you all find a new home within the industry sucessfully!

On the other side of this story, yet another studio having to close due to the governments unwilling cooperation in tax breaks. Thank you government...

A year after leaving MS to join up with Activision and your no more. :( Hopefully they'll set up another company and not make the same mistake again. They've made too many great games to disappear completely.

Take heed anyone who thinks of doing the same, unless you've got a AAA game thats gonna sell by the shitload don't sign with Activision.

Even then it's probably not a good idea. Look at Infinity Ward.
