This morning one of the founders of Irrational Games, Ken Levine announced that they are shutting down the studio as we know it. In a post on the company’s website he talks about the legacy of the studio, and why he came to this decision.
He explained, “While I’m deeply proud of what we’ve accomplished together, my passion has turned to making a different kind of game than we’ve done before. To meet the challenge ahead, I need to refocus my energy on a smaller team with a flatter structure and a more direct relationship with gamers.”
In his message he also recounted the iconic characters and settings he and his team created. “We built Rapture and Columbia, the Von Braun and The Rickenbacker, the Freedom Fortress and some of the nastiest basements a SWAT team ever set foot into. We created Booker and Elizabeth, the Big Daddy and the Little Sister, MidWives and ManBot.”
