When last we heard about Project Gotham Racing and Blur developer Bizarre Creations, Activision was looking for a buyer for the studio, and if none was found, the final axe would fall. Today, it has all but certainly fallen. It looks like, barring a miracle, Bizarre Creations will be no more.

According to an article on Develop, Bizarre's parent company, Activision, has not found a buyer for the studio, and has recommended its closure. Bizarre will apparently accept the recommendation and close its doors for good. So pour a little off the top for a dead game developer.

“I want to be clear, our first choice was to try and keep this group together and find a buyer for the studio," said Coddy Johnson, Activision Worldwide Studios’ chief operating officer, “This decision comes after a few months of exhausted examination of a number of different options across the board.”

"Unfortunately, so far we’ve not been able to find any interested parties. So we’ve made as a last resort, a recommendation to the team for closure,” Johnson said.

As of a few months ago, there were 200 people employed at Bizarre.
