It looks like Disney have closed up Brighton-based developers Black Rock Studios, the team responsible for the rather brilliant Split/Second.
Eurogamer is reporting that the entire workforce were told yesterday, offsite, in Brighton Town Hall. Apparently Disney handled the developers “clumsily”, outsourcing titles to other studios that Black Rock were capable of producing themselves.
You’ll remember we mentioned that some of the team had already formed Roundcube. We wish them (and everyone affected) the best of luck.
