    Don't forget, these were also the peeps who did GoldenEye before they split from Rare.

    I don't understand how it affects the Holiday inn next door though. Maybe its the owner of the complex thats FRD is renting that has went bust...or something.

    so nekotcha works for them?

    wow, I'm really surprised, first because its the games industrie second of the way it is handled. I always feel sorry for the workers, when companies close over night, but at this time of the year, i got no words...........

    Who is blaming who? FRD was/is one of the best developers this country has. Despite the mistakes with Haze they were still miles ahead of everyone else in terms of mixing gameplay and fun.

    Yeah. When you play a TS game, you can tell they the team had fun making it and designing all the crazy (and exaggerated) characters. If this news is true then its a big loss.

    Shocking indeed. My source? The people at the Holiday Inn next door to the offices just wanting to know why they've been locked out...

    Why have they been locked out?

    Maybe they shot Doak before they could get the key card!

    That's a really sly but cool reference.

    I feel sorry for the workers of course, but in terms of their output, I can't honestly say that I'll miss them.

    C'est la vie!

    Hmm I thought that Haze sold relatively well despite the crap reviews?

    C'mon, people. Have some heart. We got developers on here.

    If it's a real studio closure, that's not a good thing at all. Particularly at this time of year and when the government are calling for more investment into that industry.

    If not, well, wait and see, but show some decorum!

    Doesn't really mean a jot if they didn't have a publisher lined up for TS4.

    Would it be better if I integrate the numbers into my post?

    Timesplitters is a mint series. Free Rad are worth their weight in gold for that alone.

    I heard a rumour some time ago that BF3 had been pulled, and Haze wasn't a big sucess. Best of luck to all the guys there though.

    Right, It's a games forum. So you just cut that its fucking sad shit out right now. Are you 85? Does it hurt your head to see numbers or something.

    Ignore me if it annoys you so much.

    People are actually glad a bunch of people are going to lose their jobs? (Assuming this is true) Unfuckingbelievable.
