With the recent news of Team Bondi's demise, selling off assets, and acquisition by KMM I thought I would list a few game companies we've lost over the years, along with their most received games.
It's crazy to see a full list of them because then it really sets in. We've been losing really great game studios since 2000, and it just keeps getting worse. Did any of them on the list shock you?
...does this mean no Baldur's Gate 3? Darn cliffhangers...
I don't know if there will be a sequel or not, but normally a company will sell off its assets before closing, so another company may have the rights to Baldur's Gate.
There might be, Bioware developed the second game and still own the rights. Very unlikely though.
Clover should have been on that list....
Frontlines fuels of war?! That game was a turd in digital form.
Missing. -Realtime worlds -Grin -Ensemble(Thank you micro$oft :() -Free radical(If they had only made timesplitters 4 instead of haze they would still be independant instead of making tagged on mp for crysis 2)
If rumours are true Free radical (now known by the name Crytek UK) are developing Timesplitters 4. I hope this is true.
Some pretty great companies there, lost, Black Isle (incidentally, never actually made an RTS as the article seems to suggest, let's just assume it meant RPG, because they were the king of that), Looking Glass, Westwood, Pandemic. Pretty sad.
What about Cing ? They made some of the best games for the DS (best in my opinion though).
