Factor 5 ‘Officially Closed,’ Claims Source

Factor 5

“We just learned from inside sources that developer Factor 5 has officially closed their doors as of today,” reads an e-mail that was sent to, and reposted by, IGN editor Matt Casamassina. “That’s some pretty big news considering that those guys have been around for quite a while.”

Factor 5, founded in 1987, has yet to issue an official statement on the matter. The developer was known to be working on a number of multi-platform projects and dedicated Wii games, one of which was strongly rumored to be a Superman title.

“Things are obviously in flux and we hope that the game proves to be as indestructible as our hero,” Factor 5 president Julian Eggebrecht commented after publishing partner Brash Entertainment unexpectedly shut down earlier in the year.

    Well, is this really much of a surprise? In the past Factor 5 has led the industry with some “sick” games, but with the recent publications of LAIR, come on, it was destined for this company to fail. Don’t get me wrong, LAIR has amazing graphics, but “no” person would exclaim that LAIR defines game controls. Well maybe I am being a tad harsh about the defining, they do adequately define, well, BAD GAMES.
