Sega shuts down Racing Studio

Sega's UK-based Racing Studio has been closed, MCV sister site



According to a former staff member from the studio, the Solihull-based outfit has shut down effective immediately.

Sega Racing Studio had so far developed just one game, its PS3/360 and PC remake of Sega Rally. Released in September 2007, the game debuted to fairly good reviews (with an average score around 75 according to Metacritic), but less stellar sales.

The reason for the closure is not yet known. Reps from Sega UK had not returned Develop's call for comment at the time of publication.
