Silent Hill: Downpour Developer May Be Forced To Close Its Doors
Silent Hill: Downpour was decent but not great. And "decent" isn't always enough for a developer to survive in such a competitive industry.
According to Eurogamer, Downpour developer Vatra Games may be forced to close its doors, as it is currently under "strategic review" by parent company Kuju Entertainment. Said a representative from the latter company:
"The new management team at Kuju have been conducting a strategic review of all aspects of the business. As part of this process, the ongoing business activities of the Vatra studio are currently under review. However, at this stage, no decisions have yet been made."
Many hardcore Silent Hill fans were a little disappointed at how the latest iteration turned out and as a result, sales weren't exactly brisk. The only other Vatra title we know of is the downloadable game Rush 'n Attack: Ex-Patriot. As of now, the team is supposed to be working on a big new action game (perhaps similar to God of War) but at this rate, we may never see it on store shelves.
