Ratbag Closed

Midway closes San Diego, Aussie studios on GameSpot reports that Midway has pulled a bit of a Grinch move, closing their San Diego, California and Adelaide, Australia studios just a couple of weeks before Christmas. The Australian closure is surprising, as Midway just acquired Ratbag Studios to be their Aussie studio in August (story), but the report cites a recent string of losses as a likely motivation behind the move, so this may be a case of Ratbags being thrown off a sinking ship.

Don't forget that we don't have any details of the severance terms. The RatBag staff MIGHT be very happy with them (yeah, really probable, eh?).
There's bugger-all chance of finding out from the "News" section of their web-site though, it wasn't even considered newsworthy when they got bought out!
If they are so stuck in their own little world they only pause to praise their products, what fan support do they really deserve?
