2K Australia is shutting down
2K Australia is closing down, with all employees set to lose their jobs or be reassigned.
Following an initial report from Kotaku Australia based on an anonymous source, a 2K representative sent the following statement to Polygon:
"We can confirm we have taken steps to begin the studio closure process for 2K Australia in order to better manage ongoing development costs while improving the working proximity of our creative teams. We are very grateful for the team's valuable contributions to numerous 2K projects, and are working with affected staff to explore reassignment opportunities where possible."
2K Australia most recently developed Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, which launched last October on PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Xbox 360.
