Game Developer Cohort Goes Out Of Business

The game development and entertainment firm Cohort Studio is closing down, the company announced.

According to the company, this development is the outcome of consistently declining demand for console games in the market.

Lol Scragg, the Chief Executive officer of Cohort Studio said in a statement "It really is with great sadness that we have been left with no alternative but to start winding down."

The company, founded in 2006, was responsible for The Buzz, Lemmings and other well received games. Its entire staff, around 25 people, will be losing their jobs once the shutdown is complete.

Scragg said on a sad note, "Making all 25 employees redundant is genuinely heartbreaking.”

It is important to note here that earlier last year, another computer from Dundee went out of service with the loss of more than 200 jobs.

Scragg added (opens in new tab), "It goes without saying that we wish them all every success, as they really are a very talented team and we are actively trying to seek employment for each and every one of them.”

He also said that in the beginning of the running year, the company desperately tried to change the direction of its business, but eventually ran out of time, thus reaching this dead-end.
