Bodycount developer Guildford Studio to be shut down by Codemasters

News Codemasters

The developers behind the recently released generic first person shooter Bodycount have received bad news today. Per UK law, the company and its 66 employees have been informed today about the 30 day consultation shut down period, meaning that Codemasters is going to be shutting down the studio. Bodycount, the game developed by Guildford Studio received very poor ratings across the board and barely placed on sales charts the week of release.

In a statement to Eurogamer, a Codemasters’ spokesperson stated “”As we look to take greater leadership in the racing category, Codemasters is proposing a studio structure that adds resource and strengthens our best-in-class racing teams.” He went on to say that anyone who is being fired at the moment should apply for a position at Codemasters’ Warwickshire HQ which works on games such as Dirt and Grid or the Birmingham Studio that is working on a new racing franchise.

As a big fan of anime and games I'll be quick to cover anything that happens to be of interest.
