Black Friday – Disney Studios is Closing Black Rock Studios.
Based in Brighton UK. Black Rock the racing studio, bought from Climax back in 2006 is to close, making 40 people redundant. This is a shocker for the UK gaming industry.
A statement from Disney reads:
“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.”
It’s a sad day for UK gaming companies.
Retired programmer, due to health issues. But I cooked code for over 21 years just about. Command leader of SGUK-1. Fun bunch of people that like to play and are passionate about Stargate and any games out there.
Unfortunately the Stargate games came to an end. So now I research video games and advise on things.
