Prototype 2

Radical Entertainment, the development company behind Prototype 2 has closed its doors. Although some employees will stay on to support existing projects, there will be no new games from Radical. The news broke via the twitter feed of the studio's ex-Audio Designer Rob Bridgett, who tweeted: "RIP Radical Entertainment 1991-2012".

Activision, Radical's parent company, issued a statement saying:

"Although we made a substantial investment in the Prototype IP, it did not find a broad commercial audience. Radical is a very talented team of developers, however, we have explored various options for the studio, including a potential sale of the business, and have made a difficult conclusion through the consultation process that the only remaining option is a significant reduction in staff. As such, some employees will remain working for Radical Entertainment supporting other existing Activision Publishing projects, but the studio will cease development of its own games going forward."

Radical also developed Simpson's Hit and Run, Scarface, and a canceled sequel to Scarface.
