Airtight Games, much like the protagonist of the studio’s recently released Murdered: Soul Suspect, is no more. It quietly closed its headquarters at Redmond, Washington and put a “For Sale” sign up front.
While no official announcement has been made by the studio, Geekwire reports that Airtight’s offices are abandoned, apart from a sea of unmanned workstations, and even posted a picture of the studio’s former office space with the aforementioned sign declaring the company is now closed.
The site also reports that a small pile of past E3 awards were left behind among the office equipment. If you follow the link above, you’ll see that one of these awards is a nomination for best Action/Adventure at E3 2013, by your favorite gaming news site (that’s GamersPack).
The sad news come less than a month after Airtight Games has released Murdered: Soul Suspect on consoles and PCs to mixed reviews. We at GamersPack gave the game a 2 out of 5, saying it had some real gems inside, but they are tainted and not worth the trouble.
The studio is also responsible for games like Dark Void and Quantum Conundrum.
Kim Swift, the designer behind the hit puzzle game Portal, has been working at the studio as a creative director, until she recently left to join Amazon Game Studios.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores.
