Bizarre Creations' Design Lead Lands At Sumo Digital
CVG is reporting some good news amidst all the sadness surrounding the closure of respected UK racing studio Bizarre Creations. Gareth Wilson, Bizarre's now-former design manager, has landed a job at Sumo Digital. Wilson was the lead designer on the PGR series and the recent Blur. He will now serve in a similar role at Sumo. On its face, it seems to be a good fit, and Sumo has a history in the racing genre, with projects including Sega All-Stars Racing, F1 2009 for Wii, and the PSP version of Split/Second.
Hopefully others from Bizarre will land on their feet at other developers.
