Minimum Devs TimeGate Studios reportedly lets go of entire staff
Timegate, the developers behind the upcoming blockman shooter Minimum hit some rocky waters last week when it was announced the company had filed for Bankruptcy. For those unfamiliar with Timegate, the developers previously crafted the Sci-Fi shooter Section 8 and co-developed the absolute train-wreck that was Aliens: Colonial Marines.
It was revealed the studio owed various creditors in amounts ranging from 10 to 50 million including a 7 million fraud lawsuit revolving around Timegate and Section 8's publisher Southpeak. Timegate also apparently owes a local pizzeria where the studio ran up a heinous tab of $34.80.
Today according to Kotaku, the studio was forced to lay off its entire staff. No doubt the closure had something to do with TimeGate's financial misfortunes, but there hasn't been any confirmation as to what dealt the final blow.
Obviously this doesn't bode well at all for the studio's upcoming Free-to-Play shooter Minimum which was suppose to be released this year, but now is most likely dead in the water.
Our sympathies go out to all those at TimeGate who lost their jobs.
