TimeGate Studios shuts down for good

sega addicts timegate closed

TimeGate Studios, the development team at least partly responsible for Aliens: Colonial Marines, has fired all of its staff and has effectively disappeared. This news comes a week after we reported the troubled firm filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

After losing its credibility following the release of the diabolical Aliens: Colonial Marines, losing a lawsuit against Section 8 publisher SouthPeak Interactive and owing money to over 50 individual creditors, this news is hardly shocking.

Even so, it’s never nice to read about job losses and our thoughts go out to all those affected.
