Factor 5 Shutters US Office

Ever wonder what scathing reviews and the general gaming audience rejecting a multi-million project could lead to? More than likely this.

Factor 5’s US division is closing, in part due to the econmony and surely due to the failure of Lair, that dragon game on the PS3 that never should have included motion controls. The studio that brought us classics like Rogue Squadron isn’t out completely, as Factor 5 Germany remains open for business.

Achim Moller, CEO, stated the company has, “partnered with both old and new friends in the industry who will reveal our upcoming projects over the next months.” E3 anyone? Given the company’s history, this is a somber farewell. A next-gen Rogue Squadron would be incredible.
