Neversoft Go out in Style by Burning a Replica of Their Logo

There was nothing cooler for me when I was a kid, turning on my PlayStation 1, putting in Tony Hawks pro skater 3 and seeing the Neversoft eyeball getting impaled on a spike, ahh  the memories. Anyway…

Sadly today was the final day of the studio running independently after a 20 year run. Neversoft are best known for creating the Tony Hawk series and also Guitar Hero. The studio made a new Tony Hawk game every year from 1999 to 2007 with Tony Hawks Proving Ground being the last in the series. In 2007 they acquired the licence for Guitar Hero and developed that years Guitar Hero 3 and everyone in between until 2010 when Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock was the last title in the series.

The reason for Neversoft’s departure is that the staff are being amalgamated with Infinity Ward *shudders* to work on Call of Duty. The decision was made to amalgamate after they helped develop Call of Duty: Ghosts, the first major title they had worked on for a while. Maybe we’ll see some good games come from Infinity Ward now?

The staff didn’t just set fire to an iconic logo, oh no, each member of staff got a seriously bad ass Bowie knife! It even had the Neversoft logo engraved on the side!
