Radical Entertainment Is No More; Activision Indirectly Blames Us Gamers

Video game studio, Radical Entertainment, who brought us Prototype and Prototype 2 has been shutdown by Activision.

Kotaku reports that Activision shut the game studio down because Prototype could never find an audience.

We received a statement from Activision on the studio’s closing:

Although we made a substantial investment in the Prototype IP, it did not find a broad commercial audience.  Radical is a very talented team of developers, however, we have explored various options for the studio, including a potential sale of the business, and have made a difficult conclusion through the consultation process that the only remaining option is a significant [...]

New Prototype 2 Live Action Trailer

Radical Entertainment has released a new trailer for Prototype 2, this one featuring a live action Sgt. Heller facing off against Mercer. This trailer reinforces that the story (at least initially) will be one of revenge. The trailer looks to be the start of the game, with the city being infected, and then Heller himself being infected personally by Mercer. It’s pretty neat, give it a watch:

11 Reasons You Need Prototype 2

Radical Entertainment has released a new trailer for Prototype 2, this one citing eleven reasons that you need Prototype 2. Frankly, there’s only reason I need: it looks fun. Prototype 1 wasn’t a perfect game, but it was really fun to play, and the sequel looks to continue the fun. Just give me a bunch of cool powers and enemies to kill, that’s enough for me. Normally I love a great story, but from Prototype 2, I just want great gameplay. I want awesome, tentacle and sword powers and use them to kill a bunch of dudes. A ton of dudes. Like a Dynasty Warriors amount of dudes. That sounds fun. Stay tuned for more information on Prototype 2, which launches on April 24th [...]
