Representatives from Hip Interactive Europe have issued a statement clarifying the status of the company's various titles, in the wake of the closure of Hip's Canadian parent company. Despite indicating only last month that the company would remain the publisher of George A. Romero’s City of the Dead, Hip Europe has now dropped the game, claiming in its official press release that the company "had concerns over the quality of the development." This follows efforts by UK developer Kuju Entertainment to find an alternative publisher for the game through receivers Ernst & Young - though this was apparently because of the funding shortfall following Hip Interactive's bankruptcy, rather than quality issues. However, Hip Interactive Europe has confirmed the release of a number of its other titles, including Rugby Challenge 2006 and Garfield: Saving Arlene in European territories for this autumn. However, separately of this, no further indication of the fate of titles Ghost Wars and Call of Cthulhu: Destiny's End, possibly also funded through Hip's Canadian parent, has been given.
