Boss Key Productions, the developer of Lawbreakers and Radical Heights, is the latest studio to bite the dust. The founder Cliff Bleszinski announced the studio “is effectively no more.”
He announced the closure via Twitter along with further explanation about the studio’s internal struggle after the arena shooter Lawbreakers “unfortunately failed to gain traction.”
The Steam Early Access battle royale Radical Heights was “a last ditch attempt” to make it a strong comeback for the studio. While the game garnered a lot of attention from Steam and Twitch, Bleszinski cited that “it was too little too late.”
The servers for Radical Heights will not be ceased immediately but it “will remain up for the near future,” said the founder.
With the studio’s closure, Bleszinski withdrew himself from making video games for a while. He also expressed his utmost gratitude to those who have supported him and his studio for four years.
