More UK Studio Closures

Posted on 11 January, 2012


Further bad news for the UK games industry today.  Sony are closing Bigbig in Leamington Spa (with it recently finishing work on Little Deviants for PS Vita), and Monumental in Nottingham have gone in to administration.

That means more games professionals out of a job, and another threat to how much of the UK talent will remain either in the UK, or in the sector.

It’s all very well various trade and entertainment bodies pushing an agenda of education, claiming that the sector is short on skills.  It isn’t, the only thing it is short on is jobs.
