GRIN Closed

The GRIN Website announces GRIN is officially closed, offering a goodbye from Bo and Ulf Andersson, cofounders of the Sweden-based developer, who wrap up their farewells saying: "And to all our gamers – we hope you had a good time." Rumors of layoffs at GRIN surfaced in May, and job cuts were confirmed yesterday along with reports the situation was dire. Now, following news of former GRIN staff joining Outbreak comes the bad news:
It is with a heavy heart we announce today that GRIN has been forced to close its doors. This as too many publishers have been delaying their payments, causing an unbearable cashflow situation.

After twelve years of hard work, employing hundreds of wonderfully talented men and women, it is over. It has been a great adventure and the GRIN family has experienced what few have.

Looking back at twelve years of games, titles such as Ballistics, Bandits, GRAW 1 & 2, Bionic Commando Rearmed, Wanted: Weapons of Fate, Terminator: Salvation, Bionic Commando and our unreleased masterpiece that we weren’t allowed to finish; it has been a great ride.

We would like to thank a few special companies and individuals that have meant a lot for us during these years…
