The final days of Bizarre Creations

Bizarre Creations closed on February 18, 2011 after 17 years in the videogame business. Its last two releases, 007: Blood Stone and Blur, were deemed to have underperformed, and parent company Activision dropped the shutters on the Liverpool studio as a last resort. It had tried and failed to find a buyer for the studio behind Formula One, Metropolis Street Racer, Project Gotham Racing, Geometry Wars, The Club and more, leaving around 200 staff facing redundancy.

Twenty months later, Bizarre alumni can mostly be found working at other studios or running their own studios. Stephen Cakebread, Nick Davies, Pete Collier, Danny Pearce, Martin Linklater and Matt Cavanagh all chose the latter path. (Bizarre Creations, Industry)
