Bizarre Creations evolved from Raising Hell Software, a developer of video games founded in 1988 by Martyn Chudley. Sega pressured them over the use of "Hell" in the name so the company went nameless for a short time. In 1994 a submission to Psygnosis/Sony forced the need for a new name. The founder initially put "Weird Concepts" on the submission documentation. Later a staff member used Microsoft Word's thesaurus on the name and "Bizarre Creations" was the suggestion that stuck.
The Bizarre Creations team started off with five people working on a concept project called 'Slaughter'. After seeing the demo, Psygnosis signed on the developer to develop Formula 1 for the PlayStation. Formula 1 became the best selling game in Europe in 1996.
In 2001, Project Gotham racing was release for the xbox, which would go on to become Bizarre Creations most popular game series.
In 2006, the studio announced The Club, a departure from their usual racing games.
On September 26, 2007, Activision acquired Bizarre Creations and Project Gotham Racing 4 would be their last game produced for Microsoft Game Studios.
