More devs full victim to Activision’s pruning
Shaba, which employed 30 staff, worked most recently on Spider-Man: Web of Shadows.
Kotaku’s sources suggest that the closure is due to disappointing sales of Guitar Hero 5. Interesting theory, but not one I am inclined to believe without more corroboration: it seems more likely that Activision is finally realising that the recession is an opportunity to reduce headcount and focus resources in the way that Electronic Arts, THQ and a bunch of other companies have already done.
Which suggests that not only is Activision late to this realisation, but also that more cuts are on the way.
