 RIP Radical Entertainment

Radical Entertainment, best known for the Prototype series this generation, will no longer develop games and instead will now only support other Activision titles.

“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 reduction in staff,” Activison said in a statement released tonight.

“As such, some employees will remain working for Radical Entertainment supporting other existing Activision Publishing projects, but the studio will cease development of its own games going forward.”

Radical originally opened it’s doors in 1991. Our thoughts and well wishes go out to those who have been affected by Activision’s decision.

Casualty of the aaa industry. im sure the studio could have been profitable or at least solvent but when a publisher is basically only funding games that forecasted to sell at least 1.5 mil it makes it hard to run a studio. I've listened to a few podcast about the industry and they basically say pubs won finance a game that will only sell 250k even if that game makes a profit.

the fu*k? you must not play many games if prototype is the dopest you've ever played but come on, P2 was better in literally every way. gameplay, powers, graphics, missions, less repetitive, combat, EVERYTHING

Seriously. I've always thought of Prototype as a poor man's Infamous. I tried playing the first one after I beat Infamous and was sitting there like

Part 2 was dope though

This irritated me when I read about it the other day, but it's the way of the world now.

I thought Prototype 1 was a cool a.ss game, but it had the misfortune of being released at the same time as Infamous 1 and suffered massively because of the unfortunate similarities between the two, and the ensuing comparisons.

I think each of the franchises have things that work to their advantage better than the other. I like the ability to move around the city a lot better with Alex Mercer/James Heller than I did with Cole McGrath.

That said, I liked the powers and combat systems a tad bit better in Infamous. Each franchise has it's pros and cons, and I didn't despise the Prototype series as much as others seemed to.

And the storylines for Infamous 2 and Prototype 2 were leaps and bounds better than the storylines for their respective predecessors.

I platinumed Infamous 2 and Prototype 2 but have never been able to do so with the first in each series.

It's sad though that Radical is being shut down when Prototype sold about a million copies on Xbox and PS3, and it hasn't even released on PC yet, so that'll no doubt push it a bit over the million mark.

Activision already makes a sh*tload on the COD games, so it's sad that we can't get a potential Prototype 3.

Not surprised, Prototype really was the retarded stepchild to inFAMOUS.

The whole time they were making a game which another game was running circles around them with
