Melbourne Developer Ends Transmission

Transmission Games, the Melbourne studio responsible for the recent Ashes Cricket 2009, Heroes Over The Pacific, Heroes Over Europe and a number of AFL games, has closed down, Kotaku has heard.

Transmission recently laid off a third of its staff after failing to secure several lucrative publishing deals. Today, the entire studio has shut its doors with the remaining staff made redundant.

We’ve heard that the studio went into liquidation this morning and an administrator has been appointed. However, no official statement has been forthcoming.

Any studios in Melbourne looking to hire, there’s now a bunch of talented developers looking for a new gig.
