The Studio Behind Disintegration Is Officially Closing Down

We've got some very sad news to report for fans of the sci-fi first-person shooter Disintegration, as the developer of that project - V1 Interactive - has confirmed that it is officially closing down after five years.

The team announced the news on social media earlier today:

"We are sad to inform you that V1 Interactive is officially closing. We want to thank all the talented people at V1, both past and present, who helped make the last 5 years wonderful. And a heartfelt thanks to the amazing community that supported us."

Disintegration received lukewarm reviews back at release in June 2020, and ended up shutting down its online multiplayer servers just five months after launch in November due to lack of "sufficient audience".

The studio was founded by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto, who confirmed today that employees have been aware of the situation for months, and V1 Interactive is trying to give them "ample time to search for new jobs."

"At V1, our priority has been to the wellbeing of our employees.

We’ve been transparent with them about the state of things for months and are making this decision now so they still have ample time to search for new jobs while being supported by our studio."
