“Significant interest” shown in buying Free Radical
As reported by Edge, Free Radical’s administrator – Resolve – has claimed there’s already been good interest in buying the developer.
“We are very confident that we will achieve a sale if we decide to market the business,” said spokesman for Resolve, Cameron Gunn.
“It’s a testament to the employees and the regard of the company that a significant interest has already been shown.”
That report says that “well over 100” people have already left the firm, and that a number of companies were in Free Radical’s home city of Nottingham yesterday to pay condolences and network with the staff.
Realtime Worlds, Codemasters, Monumental and Eurocom all had a presence in the area, according to sources.
Free Radical was confirmed as having gone into administration last night. Staff arrived at the company’s offices to find them locked yesterday.
