Cohort Studios, creator of PlayStation Move
on-rails shooter The Shoot
, is shutting down. Develop
reports the Dundee, Scotland outfit is closing in its fifth year of operation due to "difficulties of being a console developer in a declining console marketplace."
The 25 remaining employees have been told of the closure, after the studio let 27 others go last August. The Shoot
was the studio's first of several planned original projects, following contract work on titles like Buzz, Burnout Paradise
, and Motorstorm
. The company's final game, Me Monstar: Hear Me Roar
, will launch as a PlayStation Mini in May.
