Despite significant layoffs at Radical Entertainment, Prototype 2 is still scheduled for release on July 24 for PC gamers.
The studio has suffered significant job losses that will effect approximately 89 employees. As a result, Radical will no long be developing any of its own projects, while a few employees will continue to work for Activision on other titles.
The studio released this comment via their official Facebook page:
Hi everyone. Yes, there's some unfortunate news to share today. This morning Radical Entertainment went through a significant reduction in staff. We're very proud of what we achieved with the Prototype franchise, but unfortunately, the Blacklight virus didn't spread as far as it could. For PC gamers, rest assured that the PC version of Prototype 2 is still going to launch on July 24 as planned. And a special 'thanks' to the Prototype Army and all our extremely loyal and passionate fans for supporting Radical Entertainment. We couldn't have come this far without you."
Sad to see it come to an end for another studio.
