The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency has closed down for good. This news comes only a month after the Drawn to Death developer announced it was laying off the majority of its staff. Studio founder David Jaffe broke the news in a tweet in late February, in which he also said the studio was looking to unload a variety of Twisted Metal and God of War props to people who live near the studio.
Jaffe rose to fame as the original creator of the Twisted Metal and God of War franchises before moving away from those titles to create original games with a studio of his own.
Drawn to Death was the studio’s sole release, and the stylish shooter did not fare well among critics. A few days before this announcement, Jaffe tweeted that the team had been working on a PlayStation VR Iron Man game on its own, with plans to eventually pitch it to Marvel. Unfortunately, that game will never see the light of day, at least not from Jaffe and his team.
It is always sad to see a prolific game developer like Jaffe be faced with the decision to shut down his studio. Let us know what you think of this announcement in the comments below.
