Studio behind Dark Void closes doors after ten years of making games

Murdered: Soul Suspect dev Airtight Games shuts down

Redmond-based developer Airtight Games has been closed just weeks after the release of its latest title, Murdered: Soul Suspect.

The studio, perhaps better known for its games Dark Void and Quantum Conundrum, has been making games for 10 years – but now its headquarters has closed and its office equipment is being sold off, according to GeekWire.

Airtight has suffered a number of blows to its workforce this year, having laid off 14 staff and losing Portal developer Kim Swift to Amazon Game Studios back in April.

There’s no word on why the studio has been closed, although oddly the firm’s website remains open and doesn’t mention the closure.

Murdered: Soul Suspect was released for PC and various console last month. It was published by Square Enix and met with indifferent reviews.
