Bizarre sacked from PGR series prior to sale

Before its recent acquisition by Activision, Microsoft had already told Bizarre Creations that it would no longer be used for the development of future instalments of the microsoft-owned PGR series - thus ending a close working relationship and presumably prompting Bizarre's eventual sale.

That's funny, but I liked Bizzare, and I think it's a shame they won't be designing the PGR series anymore. T'was a great series.

Don't worry. Nothing is stopping them from making another franchise.

I wonder if it has anything to do with what Bizarre had said about DVD size.

The Project Gotham series will never be the same without Bizarre.

No one noticed that? Look at the details. Microsoft put BC up for sale? They didn't own BC flat out. They had a stake in them. This article is written using common knowledge information and made up filler to get hits. Look at the G-D details.
