Murdered: Soul Suspect Studio Shuts Down

Airtight Games, the developer behind Murdered: Soul Suspect, closed its doors this week after 10 years in the video game industry.

The independent studio shut down without warning less than a month after the launch of Murdered: Soul Suspect.  The studio recently laid off 14 employees in April to restructure their team.

Airtight Games was also known for Dark Void and Quantum Conundrum; Quantum Conundrum being their most well-received.

My Opinion:

Airtight Games IP’s never blew me away, however the independent studio offered a nice change of pace from the video game industry’s usual design tropes.  Even though Murdered: Soul Suspect didn’t fare that well critically and commercially, it is a shame the studio is shutting down.  Best of luck to all those affected by this news.
