GRIN Studios Closes Down

GRIN studios has officially closed it's doors today, and it's not a huge surprise after the sales figures for their recent games such as Bionic Commando, Termintor: Salvation, and Wanted: Weapons of Fate.

The official message was posted here, on their website, this is what they had to say:

It is with a heavy heart we announce today that GRIN has been forced to close its doors. This as too many publishers have been delaying their payments, causing an unbearable cashflow situation.

After twelve years of hard work, employing hundreds of wonderfully talented men and women, it is over. It has been a great adventure and the GRIN family has experienced what few have.

Looking back at twelve years of games, titles such as Ballistics, Bandits, GRAW 1 & 2, Bionic Commando Rearmed, Wanted: Weapons of Fate, Terminator: Salvation, Bionic Commando and our unreleased masterpiece that we weren’t allowed to finish; it has been a great ride.

GRIN studios may have not had the best track record for games as of late, but I remember playing some great games made by them in the past, such as GRAW, and Bionic Commando: Rearmed... and it will definitely be sad to see them go. Good luck to all of the former employees, here's hoping you find work at another, more well-funded game company.
