Radical Heights Developer Boss Key Games Shuts Down

Radical Heights Developer Boss Key Games Shuts Down

Founder Cliff Bleszinski, previously well-known for his role as director on the Gears of War series, announced the studio was "effectively no more" Monday afternoon on Twitter.

Despite mostly positive to average reviews, Lawbreakers failed to garner a player base that could reasonably sustain Boss Key's business, capping out during the game's first beta at 7,500 players according to GitHyp, a site that tracks the size of game player bases.

Boss Key Productions, developer of LawBreakers and Radical Heights, has closed. The game was well received, Bleszinski said, but conceded it was too little, too late. He hopes "to make something new again someday", but for now, he'll be taking some time off.

It's a sad day for Bleszinski and his team, but for the tens of Radical Heights fans who are still invested in that particular neon grind, the servers will still be on for the near future. Likewise, Bleszinski also thanked the studio's employees, friends, family, and others that have supported both himself and the studio over the past several years. Right from the start, their pet project was the arena shooter, LawBreakers.

After decades as a major public face of Epic Games, Bleszinski retired from the company in 2012 only to announce a comeback and form Boss Key in April of 2014. While LawBreakers was praised by many who played it for its mechanics and take on the genre, it ultimately failed to gain even a portion of the traction that titles like Overwatch enjoyed. Together, the duo led development on 2017's LawBreakers and launched Radical Heights just over a month ago.

There are a few games which are just a disaster, no matter how much juice you put in them, there is something that is always missing.
