Space Hulk: Ascension developer Full Control has laid off a number of its staff and has ceased development on new games.

As reported byNordicgame, the studio began facing financial difficulties last year following the lacklustre response to Jagged Alliance: Flashback and the bankruptcy of BitComposer in December – which helped market its titles.Full Control was subsequently unable to secure funding for new projects, resulting in half of its 25 staff being laid off. After further difficulties with investor Capnova, the remaining team members are also being made redundant.

And with Full Control CEO Thomas Lundnow taking up the position of head of production at Sybo Games,it appears the studio will close for good.

UPDATE:Full Control CEO has contacted Develop to clarify that the studio is not closing, but instead ceasing development of new games.

"We will continue developing new DLC for Ascension for the next two months so that's ready for release," he said. "We are making deals with third party companies to port the games to other platforms. I will keep answering emails, doing some customer support, even running marketing campaigns."
