Overview edit · view history

Widescreen Games was a development studio founded in late 1999 by Olivier Masclef, Dominique Peyronnet and Pierre Deltour in Lyon, France.

On 9th July 2009 it went officially out of business when the Bankruptcy Court of Lyon liquidated the studio. The studio ran intro trouble when CD Projekt cancelled development on The Witcher: Rise of the White Wolf in April 2009, a title Widescreen had been working on.

On 10th December 2010 Square Enix officially cancelled Widescreen's Highlander, an action title for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC first announced in 2005. It is not clear if a team of Widescreen Games continued to work on the project after the liquidation the year before or if it was passed on to a different studio after that.
