The lights are on
Radical Entertainment confirmed the upcoming release of Prototype 2 for PC is still coming next month as planned. Activision said the studio will no longer create games for the publisher and laid off a significant number of employees yesterday.
"We're very proud of what we achieved with the Prototype franchise, but unfortunately, the Blacklight virus didn't spread as far as it could," Radical said on Facebook. "For PC gamers, rest assured that the PC version of Prototype 2 is still going to launch on July 24th as planned.
"And a special 'thanks' to the Prototype Army and all our extremely loyal and passionate fans for supporting Radical Entertainment. We couldn't have come this far without you."
Activision said it's looking over its options for Radical, which even includes selling studio.
Nice that they are making sure everyone can play their game.
I hope you guys manage to find jobs soon, Radical. Good luck in future endeavors.
It shows how Activision feels about PC gamers when they declare the game a sales flop before it even launches for PC. I still plan on picking it up on Steam however.
I'm so bummed this series is ending & Radical is getting treated like this.
And watch it sell like 15 million PC copies somehow.
