Following rumors that the studio was to be shuttered, publisher Take-Two has announced that while no decisions have yet been made, it is indeed considering "possible redundancies" at its UK Prizefighter and Rocky developer Venom Games.

The studio has just released the Xbox 360 version of the 'documentary style' boxing sim Don King Presents: Prizefighter first announced in December of 2007, following work on the Rocky series.

Take-Two said in a statement that the company was "assessing the role of Venom Games in Take-Two's overall global studio system and are in a consultation with the employees of Venom in relation to possible redundancies at the studio.

While rumors called for the closure of the developer by the end of July, Take-Two said that "no final decision will be made until after the consultation with employees."
