The fate of Bizarre Creations, the team behind Project Gotham Racing, Geometry Wars, and Blur, isn't looking too hot right now. Barring any last-minute miracles, the studio is likely to close.

As you might recall, Activision was in the process of finding a buyer for Bizarre; it now recommends closure for the developer. According to Activision Worldwide Studios COO Coddy Johnson, "This decision comes after a few months of exhausted examination of a number of different options across the board."

"We of course care about this team," he tells Develop. "We’re offering the studio as many resources as possible, including counseling, external placement services and external career fairs." Shame, isn't it?
