Aliens: Colonial Marines co-dev lays off entire staff - Report
TimeGate Studios reportedly sent all staffers home today after filing for bankruptcy protection last week.
Calls to the company's Sugar Land, Texas office were forwarded to voicemail.
Today's news comes a month after the developer lost a fraud appeal case against Southpeak Interactive, facing $7.35 million in damages and the loss of the Section 8 license as a result.
The company laid off an unspecified number of people in early March.
It is unclear how TimeGate Studios' free-to-play stylized PC shooter Minimum will be affected going forward.
TimeGate Studios was founded in 1998 and created the real-time strategy series Kohan, which was first released in 2001. The developer's next project was 2004 RTS Axis & Allies, based on the board game of the same name.
The developer moved into the first-person shooter space in 2006, when it released the F.E.A.R. Extraction Point expansion. TimeGate Studios would develop two additional F.E.A.R. expansions before creating multiplayer shooter Section 8 (2009) and its sequel Section 8: Prejudice (2011).
TimeGate Studios' last released game was this year's Aliens: Colonial Marines, which it co-developed with Gearbox Software and Nerve Software.
