In a sad turn of events for Eurocom—developer of those recent James Bond games—the company made the remaining 42 of its previously 150 staff members redundant after 25 years of development history, reports Eurogamer.
When you get through all the legal and business terms, it comes down to the UK-based developers not having enough money to stay afloat. Though they do hope to at least keep their doors open as a "specialist software business," said Administrator Dean Nelson, but their time as game developers has come to a sad end.
Eurocom leaves behind a legacy of many licensed franchises, ranging from James Bond titles to Harry Potter. They are perhaps best known for their more recent titles, 007 Legends, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, and GoldenEye 007 for the Wii.
