Heroes Over Europe and Ashes Cricket 2009 developer Transmission Games has apparently closed. Tsumea, along with several other Australia-based outlets, report the Melbourne developer just couldn't survive its very bad year. Allegedly, payments from failed publisher Red Mile never materialized and contracts, concerning a now-canceled Red Tails game for LucasArts, weren't properly concluded.

The news of the shutdown comes weeks after the company laid off 30 of its staff. We'll update if Transmission offers an official statement.
