Following the news that Cohort Studios based in Dundee would be closing, with the loss of 25 jobs, TIGA, the trade association representing the UK games industry, issued the following statement.
Dr Richard Wilson, TIGA CEO, said:
TIGA is hugely saddened to hear the Dundee based independent studio, Cohort Studios, will be making these redundancies. Their expertise is highly regarded throughout the industry in developing for PlayStation 3, PSP, PlayStation Network, PlayStation 2 and PC platforms. We have worked closely with Cohort over the last few years and have seen firsthand the talent and drive that went into the business. TIGA would like to place on record our admiration for Cohort and all they have achieved in the past five years. We wish Lol Scragg and the rest of the team at Cohort Studios every success in the future.”
