Eurocom is no more
Eurogamer received word that Eurocom, developers of 007 Legends, has gone into administration and that all remaining employees have been made redundant.
Dean Nelson from Midlands business advisory firm Smith Cooper said the following:
“Whilst this is unfortunately the end of the established Eurocom business, efforts are continuing behind the scenes to attract interested parties to Derby in order to help fill the void left by Eurocom. We are still hopeful that there will in the future be a specialist software business operating in Derby in place of Eurocom, but the focus will be completely different and therefore this is sadly the end of the console games development business.”
Eurocom was founded back in 1988 and created several Bond games including the aforementioned 007 but also Nightfire and The World is Not Enough. At the moment of closure, the studio was working on Harry Potter: Kinect.
After Bizarre Creations, who got shut down after release of 007: Bloodstone, this is the second studio in a row to go bankrupt after making a Bond game.
