End of the road

Ubisoft Vancouver, the studio behind MotionSports: Adrenaline and Pure Football, has closed its doors.

A Ubisoft statement to Game Informer explained the publisher's stance:

Ubisoft confirms that we have made the difficult decision to close its studio in Vancouver. Unfortunately, we haven’t found the right formula for success for the talented team there. We thank our Vancouver team for their hard work and the projects that they have delivered.

Team members will have the opportunity to consider positions in other Ubisoft studios and we will work with each of them to help find the best next step, whether it be within Ubisoft or outside.

The team's Kinect outing wasn't brilliant — our MotionSports Adrenaline review awarded it 5/10 — but the worst part bit was the back cover Photoshop disaster.

Hmm, why am I not suprised.

Coincidentally, I bought this yesterday and didn't think it was all that bad.
