Activision Shutters Vancouver’s Radical Entertainment

Earlier today Radical Entertainment audio designer Rob Bridgett tweeted RIP Radical Entertainment 1991-2012.

Within minutes the gaming industry was abuzz with rumors of Activision closing Radical and it was confirmed on their Facebook page two hours ago.

Hi everyone. Yes, there’s some unfortunate news to share today. This morning Radical Entertainment went through a significant reduction in staff. We’re very proud of what we achieved with the PROTOTYPE franchise, but unfortunately, the Blacklight virus didn’t spread as far as it could. For PC gamers, rest assured that the PC version of PROTOTYPE 2 is still going to launch on July 24th as planned. And a special “thanks” to the PROTOTYPE Army and all our extremely loyal and passionate fans for supporting Radical Entertainment. We couldn’t have come this far without you.

Radical employees 90 in Vancouver who will soon be looking for work.
