In doing so, Lucid will have assistance from economic development company Liverpool Vision, which hopes to keep the Bizarre talent in Liverpool. "This world class talent combined with a very credible and experienced management team, we believe offers the best future for a sustainable and viable business within the significant Liverpool gaming sector," said Liverpool Vision digital industry director Steve Smith. "It should be stressed that Bizarre was very successful and Activision's actions were driven by global economics and not by any failure of the creative talent based in Liverpool."
Lucid plans to "build a studio which encourages open communication with its partners, customers and other developers," according to Wallace. Lucid is currently accepting CVs via email, and representatives of the studio will be on hand at GDC next week to meet with interested parties.
