đŸ“ē Microsoft Studio Closures Affect Redfall and Tango Gameworks

Microsoft's wave of game studio closures recently hit hard, affecting prominent developers such as Arkane Austin and Tango Gameworks. Redfall developer Arkane Austin, and Hi-Fi Rush creator Tango Gameworks, are among the significant casualties in a round of cutbacks within Bethesda. Despite recent success on the PlayStation platform with Hi-Fi Rush, Tango Gameworks was unable to stave off its closure. Additionally, the impact is being felt across Ninja Theory, especially as Hellblade 2's release looms and there hasn't been much promotional buzz around the game. These closures echo actions seen at other gaming giants like PlayStation and Embracer Group, leaving gamers wondering about the fate of their favorite studios. You can read more about the situation at IGN and witness the studios' final words on their official social media channels (Arkane Studios' Twitter and Tango Gameworks' Twitter).
