Bionic Games isn’t shutting down, team already working on next major game
“I am the president of Bionic and I assure you that the team is in the studio today fixing bugs and waiting for any requests from Capcom or NOA [Nintendo of America]. You are invited to come over and see for yourself. On Friday, we began moving team members to other projects and laying off those for whom we do not have an immediate position. This is normal at every development studio that I am familiar with. This is probably what sparked the rumor. Last week, we completed our Beta delivery [of Spyborgs] to Capcom. We now only need a small team to handle any bugs that might pop up over the next month or so. The game is for all intents and purposes finished and delivered. Capcom has been consistent on all of their payments to us over the entire development period. Indeed, we are six months into our next major game and we expect to begin building out the team again once our prototype is accepted.” – President of Bionic Games Michael Haller
For now, the rumors that Bionic Games would be shutting down seem to be nothing more than a misunderstanding. I wonder, though…Will the company’s next game appear on Wii?
