MTV Games is no more

UK office closed, US office winding down

In the wake of Viacom's sale of Harmonix, MTV Games is wrapping up their business and closing their doors for the last time.

MTV Games' UK office closed its doors of Wednesday and the New York City office is now only staffed by a skeleton staff to wind the business up.

This marks the shift in Viacom's games strategy which saw it sell off Rock Band and Dance Central developer Harmonix to investment firm Columbus Nova.

The last title produced in association with MTV Games was Rock Band 3 which sold poorly despite being warmly received by the critics.

Thanks MCV.
