I thought the headline was someone's bad idea of a joke the first time I read it. What a loss for animation.

Had a bit of a look around and well, found some degree of good news.

It's not a closure, at least according to a translation of their announcement, more of a downsize, break from big production and restructure of the company.

Some things got blown a little out of proportion it would seem.

Of course, this will likely mean that the studio won't output as much as it was, and might even stop for a while. Which means that we won't see as many films from them as we use to.

EDIT: Oh apparently your source has updated itself with info from my second link, hopefully this will sort itself out in time.
