Nothing official yet, but for those interested I'm posting two articles that pertain to the possibility of vatra shutting down:

I don't speak gamer, but what does "under review" mean exactly? Does that mean vatra did something wrong? Why would they be under review?

It's restructuring--in this case, possibly eliminating an aspect of the company that isn't making enough money to really justify it being there.

It's unfortunate for those of us that would've liked to have seen Vatra try their hand at SH again. Of course, their dissolution is not set in stone.

I think this may be the result of mediocre reviews, idiot Team Silent fans not giving a crap about this and that whole HD collection mess up. I hope they don't shut down though, I would have also liked them to make the next one.

Yea after reading both I would agree that it appears that vatra is going threw a "reconstruction"...
I def would of liked them to due the next SH. They did some justice with DP now they know what there up against. Please Vatra make another 1!!

In this context, 'under review' usually results in job losses. Vatra did a good job with Downpour, so I hope Kuju dosent shut them down.

if it makes you feel better, this kind of crap goes on *constantly* in the game industry. Best thing is if Kuju just closes Vatra entirely. Then they can form their own studio, and hopefully Konami will hire them to do another Silent Hill. Then they can actually do the same work with less overhead, because there won't be a parent company to skim part of the money.
