And that’s why you should not delay your PC versions our dear developers. Radical Entertainment, developers of Prototype, are closing down as the Prototype IP did not find a broad commercial. Call me crazy, but I really liked Prototype. I thought it was cool and fun and had the potential to evolve into an amazing franchise. However, Radical did not exploit the game’s potential, delayed the PC version in order to boost the console versions and here we are today, with the closure of this gaming studio.
The new of Radical’s closure came from audio designer, Rob Bridgett, who tweeted that Radical Entertainment is no more. As Rob tweeted:
“RIP Radical Entertainment 1991-2012”
Activision then confirmed to Kotaku that Radical Entertainment wasn’t actually closed down, but that its staff has been reduced to a minimum. At this point, Radical will offer support to other existing Activision Publishing projects and it will no longer develop any new games. Basically, the gaming studio has been shut down although it officially still exists.
Radical Entertainment’s last game was Prototype 2 and its PC version is slated for a July 27th release.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
