Robert Bowling, who used to be the Creative Strategist with Infinity Ward, has confirmed with Polygon that he has shut down his new game studio Robotoki. This has left their game in development, Human Element, on hiatus.

Bowling said in an e-mail to Polygon: "This week we have ceased operations at Robotoki and the development of Human Element is on hiatus. We were actively negotiating a new publishing deal for the premium version of Human Element but unfortunately I was unable to continue to self-fund development until a deal was finalized".

 

It's quite unfortunate, as South Korea-based Nexon made a 'strategic investment' into Robotoki in 2013, and many people were looking forward to seeing what Robotoki were going to do with Human Element.
