The studio says it will keep working on new games and continue support for High on Life.
Rick and Morty co-creator and Squanch Games co-founder Justin Roiland has resigned from his role as the CEO of the High on Life developer.
The studio announced the news on Tuesday saying that Roiland left the company last week, on January 16.
"The passionate team at Squanch will keep developing games we know our fans will love while continuing to support and improve High On Life," Squanch Games wrote.
This announcement comes after earlier reports that Adult Swim has severed ties with Roiland and that the TV channel will continue developing the upcoming seventh season of Rick and Morty without him.
Roiland currently faces charges of felony domestic violence, including one count of domestic battery with corporal injury and one count of false imprisonment. In August 2020, the co-creator of Rick and Morty was arrested and later released on a $50,000 bond. He entered a plea of not guilty to both charges at his arraignment in October 2020.
Prior to his resignation from Squash Games, Roiland was a key creative force behind High on Life and also provided voices for several characters in the game. The title was a major success, becoming one of the most popular releases on Xbox Game Pass and the biggest third-party launch on the platform.
