Microprose Closes

GameSpyDaily has a confirmation of reports that Atari has closed its Hunt Valley, MD office, finishing off what remained of Microprose after the pioneering developer was acquired by Hasbro and then Infogrames (now Atari). The article quotes Nancy Bushkin, Atari's VP of corporate communications on the closure, which was prompted by a lack of work for the studio, which most recently completed work on D&D Heroes. 35 employees were let go as part of the move.
