When I (and many people who care) think of the developer GRIN, we are reminded of the much beloved Bionic Commando: Rearmed. We don’t like to think about GRIN’s trio of recent “failures”: Bionic Commando, Wanted: Weapons of Fate and Terminator: Salvation.
Perhaps we should have because, as of today, GRIN is no more. The Swedish developer officially shut its doors today citing “an unbearable cashflow situation” as the cause. It’s a tough to keep a company of 200+ afloat without any money.
From GRIN’s ashes comes Outbreak Studios which consists of a small contingent of GRIN employees who will dedicate their efforts towards the downloadable games space.
Our mission is to develop titles for Xbox 360 (XBLA), PS3 (PlayStation Store), Games for Windows Live, PSP Go and iPhone. We also deliver online components for AAA titles, both existing or upcoming.
Good for them. There’s plenty of room for quality downloadable titles like Bionic Commando: Rearmed. I look forward to their future offerings.
