Codemasters Closing Shooter Studio

British developer Codemasters plans to shutter its Guildford studio, reports Develop, where they say as many as 70 jobs may be lost as a result. This was their first-person shooter studio that took over the Operation Flashpoint franchise and most recently created Bodycount, a console shooter which met with lukewarm reviews and sales. Word is they will refocus future efforts on its racing franchises, DiRT, GRID, F1 Online, and an unannounced IP. They have this quote from a spokesperson: "As we look to take greater leadership in the racing category, Codemasters is proposing a studio structure that adds resource and strengthens our best-in-class racing teams."

I watched a quicklook of their game on giantbomb and it was so bad it was literally laughable.

If you are referring to OFRR then I donít understand what you are talking about. There was nothing laughable about the game. it was a good solid shooter and a lot of fun Coop. The only real annoyance I had with this game was the Loud mouth SSGT who cussed way too much and talked down to his troops like there were the lowest life form on the planet. The other was the locked down leash they had us on when trying to go out of bounds. OFDR was much better in this regard. Other then that the game was fun.
