2K Australia is no more
16 April, 2015

According to Kotaku, 2K decided to close the 2K Australia studio in Canberra. Its’ final game is the 2014 first-person shooter Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

The source states that the entire studio will be eliminated and all the staff fired as a result. Back in the day 2K Australia was the only AAA studio working out of the country. The main reason for closure would have to be the costs of operating such a business. A person well informed about the work of the studio says that initially the team was going to move to Melbourne.

This move was suggested to find new talents for 2K Australia. The high-level studio staff apparently didn’t like this prospect and decided to leave. Their decision became the final nail in the 2K Australia’s coffin. 2K have already confirmed the closure and released the following statement:

We are now launching the closure process for 2K Australia. This will help us to manage development costs more efficiently. This team has made great contributions to many 2K games. The affected staff will be talked to about reassignment possibilities.
