EuroGamer - Analyst have suggested the closure of Pure and Split/Second developer Black Rock had more to do with owner Disney's desire to get out of console game development than any deficiencies at the Brighton-based studio.
. There is only so much money to go around and unfortunately, you are only as good as your last game. Sales, as much as certain fanboys hate it, are the barometer that is used to show how popular or how important a title is. NOBODY is in the business of making video games hoping to break even...at least not the people who are putting up the money to make the games. People may not like it, but that's the way it is. If there is a title out there that you like, make sure you support it by buying a NEW copy of it. These guys are a talented bunch and will be fine as you can see this closure has spawned 3 different and new devs.
