After less than one month since launching their latest title Murdered: Soul Suspect, developer Airtight Games has quietly closed its studio doors. Oddly enough the Airtight website is still functional, however website Geekwire
reported that their office has since been shut down, and the studio has posted a rather cryptic tweet
sounding like a farewell.
While Murdered: Soul Suspect earned a reasonable score of 6.0 here on AusGamers
, it is still a sad day to hear of any studio in the games industry closing its doors. No official comment has yet been given from the developer, though Geekwire has claimed first-hand knowledge thanks to a trip down to their Redmond office, where the studio's equipment was being "sold off at heavy discounts."
"Thanks to all of the fans, family, friends and colleagues who supported us and made the last 10 years possible," reads their Twitter feed
. "Thanks to all of the amazing people that worked on Dark Void, Quantum Conundrum, Murdered, Soul Fjord, Pixld and DerpBike."
Airtight Games was formed in 2004, releasing its first game Dark Void in 2010. Following that was ex-Valve employee and Portal co-creator Kim Swift's Quantum Conundrum in 2012. They also developed Pixld and DerpBike for iOS and the Ouya-exclusive Soul Fjord before returning to PC and consoles with Murdered: Soul Suspect.
