Based in Croydon in south east London, Probe was responsible for the Extreme G series, Forsaken and remote control car title ReVolt. Employees at Knolly House, the home of the developer, refused to comment on the news today.
Acclaim is guarded on the issue, and is playing down the obvious assumption that the move is due to failing fortunes at the company. “That's not the case,” Smithwright added. “It's a consolidation of development resources. We have space here [at Acclaim's Knightsbridge office]. Everyone's managing the transition between hardware in different ways. This is the right thing to do.”
Expect to hear plenty more on the closure of Probe in the coming days.
Het is de werknemers van Probe afgelopen vrijdag al bekend gemaakt, maar het nieuws omtrend dit bedrijf komt langzaam op gang.
