Yesterday, we reported that few more game studio names are missing on Microsoft Studio’s website apart from the officially announced Lionhead Studios and Press Play Studios. Five studios including BigPark, Function Studios, Good Science, LXP and SOTA have been now removed from Microsoft’s site. Today, Microsoft responded to this move with the following statement,
On Monday we announced changes to Microsoft Studios including Lionhead and Press Play,” a Microsoft representative told us via email. “As part of these changes, we did a site refresh and removed several logos for older studios and projects that have been consolidated during the past several years into other Microsoft Studios and teams. As games launch and new projects come online, we routinely make these kinds of moves to ensure we have the right development support on the right games.
Also, Microsoft said that they are aware of the current Project Spart service outage and they are working as quickly as possible on a solution for it.
