Renegade Kid is Shutting Down
Co-founders Jools Watsham and Gregg Hargrove have announced that their studio, Renegade Kid will be shutting down and that the two will go on to form two new studios. Thus, bringing their 10 year partnership to an end.
News comes from an announcement made on the Renegade Kid website, which states the two are on good terms and just want to pursue different prospects. Watsham is planning to continue making games under his new company Atooi, while Hangrove will go on to form a new studio under the name Infitizmo.
Renegade Kid's library of intellectual property will be divided between the two studios, with 2D games such as Mutant Mudds and Treasurenauts going to Atooi, while Infitizmo will get 3D based IP such as Dementium and Moon Chronicles.
Renegade Kid was a highly regarded studio, with most of their titles being critically acclaimed. Though this news is somewhat sad, the future for these two new studios seems bright and exciting.
