Jump to navigation Jump to search
Background: Black Rock was a rebranded Climax Racing studio, previously Climax Brighton. It was purchased by Disney in 2006. Under its new name it had produced two games, but then went through layoffs in early 2011, despite the games selling well. Their sequels were canned as well, and the studio was announced to fully close by Disney on June 30, 2011.

2nd Logo
Black Rock (2010)

: First we see the Disney logo, which flickers violently in white noise and color effects, and turns into the BlackRock logo. After some shaking, the logo is seen in 3D view, turned slightly, and pans to another side. The shine appears on the peak. Then the logo flickers and vanishes.
