First word was spreading of the company in troubles, then rumors came that the company is closed have now been confirmed. It seems company after company is closing down in the worst possible time, the holiday season.
The Christmas period continues to be a trying time for one or two independent developers - and now a new report this week claims that US independent Factor 5 has closed.
According to a source speaking with IGN's Matt Cassamassina, the studio has shut its doors.
The developer, which worked on games such as Star Wars: Rogue Leader and PS3 game Lair - and was rumoured to be developing a Superman title for now-defunct publisher Brash - was just last week rumoured to have laid off a number of staff.
