12 Game Studios That Died in 2011

No doubts about it, 2011 was one of the best years in gaming history. Great games released consistently throughout the entire year, with many stretching their legs with awesome DLC. Despite the nonstop onslaught of impressive releases, there's been a dark fog looming over 2011 since it started; the death of development studios. (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

It sucks when a studio closes

Yes. Good hardworking people who bring their creative imaginations to life through video games. Studios ending just like that...it does suck.

I hope these guys and girls find some other projects/studios to join and continue to make what they love most.

What makes me sad is some of these games made by the studios are actually good. People would work hard on their ideas, take risks and bring them to us gamers through video games.

Unfortunately they likely end up being underrated games. People with keen interests end up buying them, while the rest of the population rushes to buy the latest Call of Duty v3.0 release yet again.
