Developer Spark Unlimited Shuts Down

Reports have come in that developer Spark Unlimited have shut down and let go of their entire staff.

A post at NeoGaf spotted an auction for the company’s assets at and Polygon was able to confirm the shutdown of the company, with John Butrovich, chief technical officer at Spark Unlimited, confirming that “it’s the end of Spark as a game developer.” Principal members of the studio “have decided to move on to other things,” Butrovich said, and confirmed that Spark Unlimited co-founder Craig Allen resigned as president and CEO from the company late last year “to pursue other ventures and interests.”

Despite their shoddy track record (you can read our review of their take on Ninja Gaiden here) a shut down is sad to hear, and Press Start hopes those affected by the layoffs will find work.
