Airtight Suffers Layoffs; Murdered: Soul Suspect Still on Schedule

By   /   Apr 3, 2014

Airtight Games, the one developing Murdered: Soul Suspect, has let go 14 of its employees this week as part of a “necessary restructuring.”

Speaking with IGN, the studio’s president and creative director Jim Deal said that the restructuring was necessary and part of the “normal ebb and flow of game production.” He then assured that the layoffs would not in any way effect existing projects, including Murdered: Soul Suspect.

Publisher Square Enix also came forward to assure fans of the game’s schedule, saying that the title is “unaffected and the core team is continuing to work towards shipping in June.”

Mudered: Soul Suspect is a supernatural detective game where the player, that is you, gets murdered by an unknown assailant. Refusing to cross over, the player or his ghost for that matter, must now embark on a quest to solve the mystery of his own murder.

According to both Airtight Games and publisher Square Enix, Murdered: Soul Suspect is still on schedule for a release on June 3, 2014.

Recently Kim Swift, the co-creator of Portal, exited Airtight and joined Amazon Game Studios yesterday; along with Far Cry 2 lead designer Clint Hocking.
