Lucid Games Formed by Ex-Bizarre Developers
Last week, Bizarre Creations closed its doors for good. Shuttered in the wake of some changes at Activision, the studio let go veterans of such titles as Blur, Geometry Wars, and Project Gotham Racing.
Talent that good won’t sit idle for long, so it was no surprise to learn that a brand new studio was forming that would incorporate some of that talent. Lucid Games is the new studio that will be based in the northwest of England.
Pete Wallace, who was a senior manager at Bizarre, is now managing Director of Lucid Games. Regarding the new studio, he said,
With the great history of Bizarre behind us, we are proud to be part of Lucid and are committed to the UK game development community. We plan to build a studio which encourages open communication with its partners, customers and other developers. Our approach is to create for fun, quality and simplicity – it’s how our games make you feel that matters to us. We are committed to hiring character, hiring talent and training skill.
According to Eurogamer, Lucid is already talking to several publishers about potential projects. Whatever they work on, you can bet that it will be well worth a look.
