Disney treated Black Rock ‘badly’

Two soon-to-be-unemployed staff at recently closed developer Black Rock have candidly told Develop that they believe the publisher had made the decision to close the outfit at the start of the year.

Together they say "this is a painted as a family friendly company, but has treated us very badly" and that despite "working hard to satisfy" a new social games strategy "once [Disney] made their mind up last year to change direction we never stood a chance".

In fact, it is claimed that the pitch which failed to pass muster was just ‘lip-service’ so the publisher could effectively wind down the business with as little fuss, employment red-tape and cost as possible.

Develop has the full story.
