Activision’s confirmed that Spider-Man: Web of Shadows developer Shaba is now more, following rumour reports earlier this week.
“Activision continually evaluates the resources at our studio properties to ensure that they are properly matched to our product slate and overall strategic goals,” said a statement from the publisher.
“As part of this process, we recently made the difficult but necessary decision to close Shaba Studios. We are grateful for the studio’s contributions and wish this talented team success in their future endeavours.”
All the best, chaps. More on GI.

David Jaffe, ex-director of God of War, has told Shaba Games, the firm behind upcoming Spider-Man game, Web of Shadows, to add variety to the title’s missions. As you do.
Speaking on his blog, Jaffe asked for developer to ditch the “open sandbox” system, saying that the variations of the basic mission types on offer were “pretty dull”, broken up only by the occasional boss battle or unique mission.
In an accurate piece of criticism about the recent games, he opined that Spider-Man should be all about the powers, and that Shaba should concentrate more on the story and characters.

No date or platform on this as yet.
