downsized Prototype 2 developer Radical Entertainment's twitter account last week may have been interpreted a bit too optimistically.
"Just a quick note to our great fans and friends," the tweet on September 19 from the company's official account read. "The rumours of our closure have been greatly exaggerated - we're still here! More later..."
We reached out to Activision Blizzard, of which Radical is a subsidiary, to get a clearer picture of the studio's status. A representative informed us that nothing had changed since the statement in late June. The staff was reduced, but the studio wasn't closed.
Radical Entertainment remains open, supporting other existing Activision projects, but the studio has ceased "development of its own games going forward."
