Black Rock Studio, the developer behind excellent racing games Split/Second and Pure, is being closed by Disney.

"Disney Interactive Studios confirms that Black Rock Studios' current project has not been greenlit for further development, consequently the company informed employees yesterday of the intent to enter a consultation process on the proposal to close the studios," wrote Disney in a statement. This news comes months after the studio laid of 40 percent of its work force.

As a huge fan of Black Rock's games, I blame you, the game-buying public, for not purchasing enough copies of these games. You should be ashamed of yourself.  There's video of both games under the "Read More" tag.
