DC Studios axes UK arm

Reports in Scottish newspaper the Sunday Herald suggest that DC Studios' offices shut on Friday, leaving 29 staff redundant. The Canadian operation, which employs 55 staff, will remain open.

Mark Greenshields, DC Studios’ chief executive told the Herald: “I’m taking legal advice on whether we go into administration or if there are other options.”

He went on to say that he would like to have a Scottish operation up and running again soon, and that finishing State of Emergency 2, which had been bought out of receivership from now-defunct Vis Entertainment last year, had been more costly than expected, adding: "We had to pay a lot of money in order to complete the game. A lot of things were discovered after the acquisition. But when you buy something out of receivership, it’s buyer beware."
