Big Huge Games, the company that brought us AoE3:TAD and Rise of Nations among others as well as parent company 38 Studios have been shut down and all staff laid off.
The move comes after disappointing sales from 38 Studios first IP Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, which was being developed by both 38 Studios and BHG with less than half the number of sales needed to break even leaving 38 Studios unable to make loan payments to Rhode Island State government.
There are also reports that staff had not been paid this month and the companies medical insurance had expired.
This month I have mostly been playing Zelda Breath of the Wild
