A few weeks ago, we highlighted how Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew was getting a fantastic reception following its August 17th release on Xbox, but now the studio behind it has announced plans to officially close its doors.

That studio is the Shadow Tactics and Desperados 3 developer Mimimi, which explained in a statement that the team felt it was the right time to "prioritize our well-being" and avoid signing up for "another multi-year production cycle".

Here's a bit of what the statement had to say:

"Dedicating the past decade and a half of our lives working on increasingly ambitious games took a heavy personal toll on us and our families. After the release of Shadow Gambit we decided it was the right time to prioritize our well-being and to pull the brakes instead of signing up for another multi-year production cycle".

Despite this, Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew will continue to be supported for the foreseeable future, with a patch currently being worked on for the game alongside a "big content drop" coming later this year.

It's definitely the end of an era though, with this fantastic studio going out on a high note after nearly 15 years of making some beloved games. The company says it will be doing "everything in our power" to help staff members find new jobs.
