Airtight Games Confirms Closure, Staff Lay-offs Started From January 2014
Murdered: Soul Suspect and Quantum Conundrum dev shuts down.
Murdered: Soul Suspect developer Airtight Games created its fair share of news yesterday when it was revealed to be selling its office equipment and reportedly shutting down. The closure follows the released of Murdered: Soul Suspect, which opened to average reviews and below average sales.
Now the developer has taken to Twitter and confirmed its closure. While the studio laid off 14 employees several months ago, a former employee revealed that lay-offs actually began around January.
Airight was fairly normal in its tweets though. “Thanks to all of the fans, family, friends and colleagues who supported us and made the last 10 years possible.
“Thanks to all of the amazing people that worked on Dark Void, Quantum Conundrum, Murdered, Soul Fjord, Pixld and DerpBike.”
Airtight’s remnants still remain intact though – Kim Swift, who worked on Quantum Conundrum and Soul Fjord, is now at Amazon Game Studios for instance. What are your thoughts on Airtight’s closure? Let us know below.
