While the news was bleak for Bizarre Creations and its 200 developers yesterday, the Activision-owned development studio behind Blur and the Project Gotham Series might yet be able to survive.
Develop has heard from sources within Bizarre that multiple parties have inquired about the studio. To be more specific, Microsoft was a studio mentioned to have at least shown some interest in Bizarre.
One source at the studio said, "Microsoft aren’t stupid. They know we’re talented and have spoken to Activision about us."
If Microsoft did purchase the studio, it would be an interesting turn of events considering the fact that Bizarre and Microsoft did not always get along. According to Develop, another outcome to all of this is that Microsoft could simply bring over some of the Bizarre employees and still let the studio close its doors.
