On February 18, acclaimed game developer Bizarre creations shut down after over two decades in the game business. For those who do not know, Bizarre Creations is the studio responsible for such critically-acclaimed racing games as Formula 1 '97, Metropolis Street Racer, Project Gotham Racing and Blur. Thanks to Blur's poor sales, despite the game being lauded by critics, Activision had originally decided to sell Bizarre due to financial issues. However, there were no companies willing to buy the developer, and so Bizarre's parent company decided to close it down. Bizarre will be remembered fondly by many racing game players, as well as sim racers, for their fantastic racing titles that will have gotten many into racing games, and sim racing. We wish Bizarre's former staff the very best in their future endeavours and thank them for their contribution to the racing game industry.
