The studio that made BioShock Infinite, Irrational Games has today announced that it is now shutting down, as announced by Ken Levine, the co-founder and creative director from the studio.
Levine wrote in his announcement post that his passion “has turned to making a different kind of game than we’ve done before.” and as a result he is “winding down Irrational Games”, bringing 15 of the studios employees to a new venture he is working on, where they will focus on “making games for the core gaming audience.”
The new venture will stay with the publisher Take-Two.
Levine finished his note by stating that they “will announce a new endeavor with a new goal: To make narrative-driven games for the core gamer that are highly replayable.”
“To foster the most direct relationship with our fans possible, we will focus exclusively on content delivered digitally.”
The subsidiary of Take-Two, 2K will take over BioShock for the future.
