Spark Unlimited Shuttering Games Development

Spark Unlimited, the developer behind such games as Legendary, Lost Planet 3 and Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, has stopped developing games after 11 years in the industry.

This news was confirmed by Polygon after a NeoGAF poster noticed the studio was auctioning off its remaining assets.

Chief technical officer of Spark, John Butrovich, told Polygon that “it’s the end of Spark as a game developer” and that the principal members of the studio have “decided to move on to other things”. He also confirmed that co-founder and CEO of Spark Unlimited resigned late last year to “pursue other ventures and interests”.

The company’s unfinished free-to-play game has been cancelled, but the studio’s core team will continue working together on non-video game projects.

Spark Unlimited was founded in 2002 and released its first game, Call of Duty: Finest Hour, in 2004. It followed up this release with Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, Legendary, Lost Planet 3 and Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z – all of which received mixed to negative reviews.

Chris loves gaming, ginger beer and facial hair. Probably an unhealthy amount. He plays loads of different games (with ginger beer in hand) and loves writing about his experiences.
