Activision Mobile Studio put on Blast
For those who didn’t know, Activision has a studio in the UK called The Blast Furnace, which put out Call of Duty: Strike Team for mobile devices last year and Pitfall, which was released August 2012. Despite the success of these titles, Activision is looking to close the UK studio.
Those at Activision expressed their desire to MCV, asking ‘keep The Blast Furnace together and develop a plan that will enable them to remain as a team’. This is very important as it will keep their European mobile reaches secured. If they managed to keep the team together, who knows what else they would put out.
Right now, everything is in in a discussion phase, and it has yet to be revealed what will happen to The Blast Furnace team or their studio.
