Hahaha Microsoft Might Save Bizarre Creations
When you’re a name studio, having a bad run, as Bizarre has had this year with the financial failure of Blur and the critical failure of Blood Stone 007, doesn’t usually mean you’re going under. Maybe the name goes away and everyone resurfaces somewhere else, but life goes on. Hell, Obsidian has put together some absolute horrors and they’re still in business.
Anyway, what I’m saying is that while everything looked bleak yesterday for Bizarre, but of course Activision would look to sell rather than shut them down if they could, and of course there are publishers who would love to have a team like Bizarre’s working under their banner.
Now, Develop has talked to a source inside Bizarre, and they say Activision folks held another meeting with them today to let them know that some folks are interested in making a purchase. And they say Microsoft is one of the groups that has reached out to Activision. This would be just about perfect, to my mind. MS needs somebody on Project Gotham Racing, and who better to do that than the folks who made the other four PGR games?
