Zombie Studios Closed

Channeling Douglas Adams, a letter on the Zombie Studios website says "So long, and thanks for all the fish" in announcing the developer is closing operations after more than 20 years. The owners of the studio say they are retiring, and they offer best wishes to Builder Box Games, a new studio composed of former Zombie employees that has bought some of their assets, including the ongoing development Blacklight: Retribution. Here's the news:

It has been over twenty years since it all started. Zombie was first formed in the same year that Forrest Gump was released, Sony's PlayStation launched, and Justin Bieber was born. It was also 4 years before Google was founded and 4 years before Half-Life was released. Since then we have published our own and been a part of thirty titles, worked on every major console, partnered with nearly every major publisher, and even did a bit of work for the US Army. Now it is time for us to part ways and close our doors.

The owners of Zombie Studios are retiring and wish to thank you, our fans for the years of support you have provided us. It has been awesome working with all the various technology over the years, both hardware and software, growing with the industry and our fans, and producing fun games and technology of our own. We also wish to thank our employees, both present and past. Your dedication and passion to gaming is what Zombie is all about.

Lastly, we want to congratulate and wish nothing but the best success to Builder Box, the new studio starting up that has acquired some of the wok Zombie is parting with, including all rights to Blacklight: Retribution. The new studio is comprised of past Zombie employees that put their hearts into Blacklight and we have no doubts will continue to do so.

Thank you, and game on.
Zombie Studios
