21 April 2008

Recent rumours have suggested that Activision is planning to close its Underground Development studio, formally known as Z-Axis. The publisher has now confirmed this and has revealed that the studio will be closing in May.

UD is currently working on the PlayStation 3 version of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, which is due for release on May 30, 2008. Its development will not be effected by this announcement, as the team will be closing after production is complete.

A spokesperson for Activision said; “Activision is closing its Foster City development studio which had less than 45 employees, we are currently making efforts to find opportunities for all employees at other Activision studios.”
