Prey developer Human Head shuts down; Bethesda hires team to open new studio

[2019.11.13, Wed 16:05] Developer Human Head Studios is shutting down today after just launching Rune II on PC earlier this week. Human Head produced the original Prey and supported blockbusters like BioShock Infinite and Batman: Arkham Origins. In its place, Bethesda Softworks is launching a new studio with the Human Head team called Roundhouse Studios. With the help of Bethesda, everyone from the now defunct Human Head will continue to have a job if they choose to come along. "Sadly, we had to wind down the business of Human Head Studios and close its doors, which was particularly devastating due to the passion and creativity of the team we'd assembled," said Rhinehart. "We reached out to our friends at Bethesda for help, and they saw that same creativity and passion in our team. With the formation of Roundhouse Studios, Bethesda offered every employee of Human Head a position at the new company. We are excited our team will remain together, pursuing the work we love, as part of a company we already know and admire." "While sorry to hear of their challenges as Human Head Studios, we were excited by the opportunity to bring under the Bethesda umbrella this talented, established development team," Bethesda development boss Todd Vaughn said.
