Namco Drops BottleRocket

Following rumors that Namco had shafted BottleRocket Entertainment – developers of the upcoming Splatterhouse game – and given the project over to an internal team, the publisher confirmed the news, stating that the aforementioned developer is no longer involved with the game.

"We have decided to part ways with BottleRocket Entertainment but we are committed to bringing Splatterhouse to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year," Namco told Kotaku. "At this time, we are not ready to discuss specific development details about the game and wish BottleRocket the best of luck in their future endeavors."

The company did not offer any reason for the sudden shift. However, Kotaku tipsters say that the studio failed to meet deadlines and that its content did not meet Namco’s expectations.
