CVG is reporting some good news amidst all the sadness surrounding the closure of respected UK racing studio Bizarre Creations. Gareth Wilson, Bizarre's now-former design manager, has landed a job at Sumo Digital. Wilson was the lead designer on the PGR series and the recent Blur. He will now serve in a similar role at Sumo. On its face, it seems to be a good fit, and Sumo has a history in the racing genre, with projects including Sega All-Stars Racing, F1 2009 for Wii, and the PSP version of Split/Second.
Hopefully others from Bizarre will land on their feet at other developers
