Admin confirms Free Radical demise

Only 40 staff remain at Haze developer.

Administration company Resolve has confirmed the demise of Haze developer Free Radical Design.

"The company was placed in to administration yesterday afternoon," Resolve spokesperson Cameron Gunn told ThisIsNottingham last week.

"We will be spending the next three or four days assessing the financial position of the company but it's business as usual, although we have asked that almost all of the employees apart from a skeleton crew remain at home.

"All employees have been paid up until the end of December and we hope to make another announcement before Christmas or very soon thereafter, but we must stress at this stage that it's business as usual," added Gunn.

Our sister site GamesIndustry.biz understands around 40 staff are still at FRD - a number cut from 185 - working on concepts into 2009.
