The original story is below.
Murdered: Soul Suspect developer Airtight Games has reportedly shut its doors. Geekwire reports that the independent game studio quietly closed its Redmond, Washington office this week. The move comes less than a month after the release of supernatural thriller Murdered: Soul Suspect for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. You can read reviews for the game here.
Geekwire visited the studio's physical working space and reports that office equipment is being sold off at "heavy discounts." A sign outside the studio indicated that Airtight Games was shutting down. The company cut 14 jobs in April as part of a move that the company described as a "necessary restructuring." At the time, the studio said it was seeking out partners to release future games.
We attempted to reach Airtight Games by email today, but received a "mail delivery failed" message when trying to do so. Geekwire has also been unable to reach the company for comment.
Airtight Games opened in 2004. The studio released Murdered: Soul Suspect and Soul Fjord this year, before that launching Portal designer Kim Swift's puzzle game Quantum Conundrum in 2012. The studio is perhaps best known, however, for its development of 2010 action game Dark Void for publisher Capcom. Swift has since left the company to take a job at Amazon Game Studios.
