After a four-year run, Boss Key Productions “is no more”, as Cliff Bleszinski announced on his latest post on social networks. The studio has been in charge with LawBreakers and Radical Heights, which suffered unfortunate launches on PS4 and PC via Steam.
“As of today, Boss Key Productions is effectively no more. Four years ago I set out to make a world class video game studio and I hired some of the best talent in the videogame industry. They worked tirelessly to produce quality products and, while we had our ups and downs, I’d like to think we had fun doing it,” he told his followers on Facebook.
“LawBreakers was a great game that unfortunately failed to gain traction, and, in a last ditch attempt we scrambled to do our take on the huge battle royale genre with Radical Heights which was well received, however, it was too little too late.”
He further explained that this means that he will take some time off from the video games industry, probably due to the fatigue of the experience and the will to be for quite a long time off the radars.
“As for myself, I’m going to take some time off and reflect. I need to focus on myself and family as well as my Aussie, Teddy, who is slowly fading from us. Videogames will forever be a part of who I am and I hope to make something new again someday, however, I need to withdraw and take this time.
To those of you who have supported myself and the studio these last four years, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart and everyone who came to work for me.”

For those among you wondering, Bleszinski was quick to point out that servers for Radical Heights will remain active for the time being, so you can still play it if you have downloaded the client, or plan to, on Steam.
