Five developers we wish hadn’t been shut down

In this list, we take a look at some of the developers or publisher that are no longer. We’ve only included companies that have been shut down in recent years, meaning important companies like Westwood Studios and Sierra Entertainment aren’t included.

I will forever mourn team Bondi - they gave me one of the most unforgettable games I have ever played.

The only reason they did that is because the developers were working 12+ hour days, 7 days a week, for 7 years. That's an average of 84 hours per week, and some developers said they were forced to work 110 hour weeks. Those kind of working conditions are not acceptable, which is why an investigation was launched and the studio was shut down.

Yes especially Evolution Studios, Team Bondi and Irrational Games are all really sad because they made great games till the end, I just loved the Motorstorm Games they were so awesome on PS3 and Driveclub is an awesome game too. In case of Irration all games they made were just fantastic and Team Bondi I really liked L A noire.

Lionhead sadly their games got worse and worse after the mediocre Fable 3 the absolute disaster Fable: The Journey and than the next disaster Fable Legends, Fable Legends just looked awefull from the beginning. I really can understand why Microsoft had to close them.

Can't really agree with Team Bondi sadly. The work conditions there were disgusting and the studio should have been shuttered long before it was. The horror stories from there are quite telling.
