According to this GI story, Pivotal Games is to close. The outfit is the developer of Eidos’s Conflict series.

Virtually all of the company’s staff have been made redundant, with the rest to follow in three months.

“Eidos’ parent company SCi Entertainment Group announced on February 29 its plans to re-structure its business and to focus on cornerstone studios and core franchises,” said an Eidos spokesperson.

“As part of this process Eidos confirms that despite reviewing a number of alternative options, we are closing Pivotal Games but we will be keeping a team of 10-12 specialists in Bath – who will work on specific projects for the group.”
