Luxoflux Corp. was an American video game developer founded by Peter Morawiec and Adrian Stephens in January 1997, and based in Santa Monica, California.
Luxoflux had a relatively small team size for its first few titles. The two founders plus Jeremy Engelman, David Goodrich and Edvard Toth created Luxoflux's first title Vigilante 8. The game was successful and was ported to the Nintendo 64, and it was followed by a sequel Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense in 1999.
In October 2002 Activision announced it had purchased Luxoflux, which at the time was working on True Crime: Streets of LA. The studio delivered the game and its sequel, True Crime: New York City, before working on licensed titles Kung Fu Panda and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
On February 11, 2010, Activision announced it was time to shut down the studio as part of a widespread staff reduction that also included the shuttering of Underground Development.
