This past fall’s 007 Legends wasn’t particularly well received by critics, including us. It looks like the developers behind the game, Eurocom have closed their doors for good as they enter “administration”, as reported by Eurogamer. A company in the U.K entering administration is similar to one filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy here in North America, they have effectively laid-off their entire 150 person workforce.
Prior to working on 007 Legends Eurocom released the well received James Bond title, GoldenEye Reloaded, on the Nintendo Wii and then Ps3/Xbox 360 one year later. Other notable projects over their 25 year history include Deadspace Extraction on the Wii and the really under rated Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds on the PlayStation 2. The remainder of their catalog consists of various ports and licensed titles dating back to the early 90s.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone who lost their jobs yesterday. It is always sad to see a company go under, especially around the holidays.
