The lights are on
Earlier this year Czech developer Vatra Games released Silent Hill: Downpour to average reviews. That performance may seal the fate of Vatra, which is currently under review by owner Kuju Entertainment.
Eurogamer's Czech site first reported trouble at Vatra, and since then the main website has contacted Kuju, which did not say that the studio was being closed. Kuji did say it was being reviewed – like all other aspects of Kuju's portfolio – by the company's new management team.
Apart from Silent Hill: Downpour (click for Tim's review), Vatra also handled Rush 'N Attack Ex-Patriot to similarly middling critical opinion.
