Studio closures are never good, as each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Its a shame that Bodycount flopped, but had Codemasters took all the feedback. and tried again wit such changes incorporated, they could have made a good game.

Shame the team will never get that chance.

Shame to know if your game flops your more than likely to be getting a P45 soon.
Ok the game was pretty bad but as @clockplunk says learn from customers feed back and build on it.

Time = money, especially in todays climate.

I will hold my hands up, I rather liked the demo. When it is in the bargain bins, if not already, I will pick it up. Shame to see them close shop as it does have potential.

The silver lining being that codies have pretty much perfected the racing genre already. So, to put another studio into racing development will only improve their already solid foundations. Commercially their FPS franchises have done fairly badly. Financially this is a wise move.
