Kotaku has reported that Factor 5, the creators of Liar and the Rogue Squadron series, has closed it’s doors. Factor 5 is just one of many recent video game companies that has either shut its doors or laid off a large number of employees. A post over at the IGN boards by Matt Casamassina leaked the rumor:
(Casamassina) [I w]as hoping the rumors weren’t true. Contacted Julian over at F5 to shed some light, but he didn’t get back to me. Got an e-mail from an inside source tonight:
How have you been? Haven’t seen you guys since E3. I hope that you’re doing well!
[Redacted] wanted me to contact you with some late breaking news. We just learned from inside sources that developer Factor 5 has officially closed their doors as of today. That’s some pretty big news considering that those guys have been around for quite a while. It’s definitely a real shame! I hope that this information is helpful to you. Take care, and please say hi to Bozon for me.”
