The situation regarding the action title has been unclear for several weeks. ”There have already been several interested parties in the game, the team and the technology,” commented Kuju MD Jonathan Newth. “We are hopeful that some elements of the project will continue beyond the unfortunate demise of Hip Interactive.”
