THQ closes UK studio

The closure consultancy period for THQ’s UK development team has come to an end, and the publisher has indeed decided to shut the studio down, Develop has been told.

Close to 36 will be made redundant effective immediately, with a transition team of 10 left to see the studio’s current project, Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team, through to release on PSN. The game hit XBLA today.

But out of that sad news comes hope for at least three start-ups.

Two of them are studios. One is D3T, a three man team led by Jamie Campbell and Stephen Powell.

The other will be established by Don Whiteford and Ric Badger, but won’t be named or made official yet until the transition team has completed its work.

Sister site Develop has the full story.
