IGN is reporting
that Capcom has shuttered developer Clover Studios. Clover was the developer behind the Viewtiful Joe series as well as the recently released games Okami
and God Hand
. While this sort of thing is the norm in the industry you never really get used to seeing developers getting sent to the "farm in the country" after they ship their games (especially a great game like Okami). Best of luck to the guys at Clover and hopefully you find new jobs soon.
