Airtight Games May Have Closed Down A Few Weeks After Releasing Murdered Soul Suspect

It looks like Airtight Games has closed down with immediate effect, and just a few weeks after releasing Murdered: Soul Suspect. The report comes from Geekwire who took a trip down to the studio’s offices, but only found a place that was empty with a large clearance sign on the door. The sign was advertising the sale of the office equipment, with the quote “Company closing doors.”

The studio’s last game was released on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, but received average reviews. It also appears it isn’t doing too well retail wise as over the last week deals gone up shifting the game on Xbox One and PS4 for as low as £19.99. No one from the studio has yet commented on the situation, and the company website hasn’t posted anything about the closure. Airtight Games Twitter has also not updated for a couple of weeks either.

We’ll keep you updated as the story unfolds.

  1. Yeah I noticed Murdered: Soul Suspect is rather cheap on all platforms. It seems like a decent enough game, though perhaps not quite the big £30-50 title people want.

  2. Tempted to get it. Watched the intro on YouTube and it didn’t look too bad. Like the dude said above. Didn’t warrant the full price by the looks of it.

  3. Would have to agree not Worth the £40 that i paid for it on launch day, managed to platinum it in just over a day. Would say it’s pretty similar to Heavy Rain.
    Did manage to get £26 (trade-in) for it at Game.

  4. Looks like the first victim of overpricing on next gen games.

    • A bit of both, fella. It didn’t deserve the price. I guess you can come at this from both directions. I find it such a shame that a single title can damn you (the company) and have people looking for jobs almost immediately. I can’t help but think this is a very fragile way to have so many companies in the industry. :-(

      • Yeah shutting down after one average game is a sad situation. I wonder if releasing before watchdogs would have helped its sales.
