Could this be the end of the co-op shooter?
Paradox Interactive’s Hollowpoint, developed by Ruffian Games, has been fairly quiet with the details since it was last seen at E3 2015. However, it seems that Ruffian is no longer working on the game and its agreement with Paradox is over. In fact, as per Eurogamer, Ruffian ceased working with the publisher as of last Summer.
A spokesperson for Paradox told GameWatcher, “Today we would like to announce that the working relationship between Paradox Interactive and Ruffian Games on ‘Hollowpoint’ has been amicably terminated.
“After recent ongoing discussions between the two companies, it became apparent to both parties that the creative vision for the project was diverging and so the decision was ultimately taken to cease our co-operation in order to serve the long-term interests of the game.
“We would like to thank Ruffian Games for all their hard work and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours. Paradox will be re-evaluating the creative direction of ‘Hollowpoint’ internally before making any final decisions.”
