We regretfully report that Motiga, the studio behind the Xbox One and PC game Gigantic is no longer in development at this time. This report comes from Motiga’s official website where they have stated that the reason for the halt in development is due to significant layoffs that have hit the studio as a result of financial troubles. Due to this reason Motiga is unable to continue development on the game at this time.
Motiga has promised that they will continue to support current Gigantic gaming services for the beta for as long as they can and will continue to engage with its partners and investors in hopes that they will be able to get the studio back up and running.
Anytime a studio is hit with these types of woes it is sad news indeed. If you were hyped for this game we encourage that you hit twitter and let the heads at Microsoft know that you are hyped for this title and encourage them to back this studio.
