Cliff Bleszinski, the creator behind the very popular Gears of War series has taken to Twitter to announce that his studio Boss Key Production is now officially closed, effective immediately.


Boss Key Productions was the developers behind the failure of a title LawBreakers, CliffyB addresses that "LawBreakers was a great game that unfortunately failed to gain traction" as the title was squashed throughout the raw popularity of the Battle Royale genre. In hopes of stringing something together CliffyB says that him and his team "scrambled to do our take on the huge battle royale genre with Radical Heights, which was well received. However, it was too little, too late."

Its good to see a developer coming out and admitting that one of their titles was a desperate attempt to keep their studio afloat, here is what CliffyB finished up on saying. "To those of you who have supported myself and the studio these last four years, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please note, that the servers for Radical Heights will remain up for the near future."
