Asmodee's Fantasy Flight Interactive studio is closing

Digital board game company Fantasy Flight Interactive is going to be closing in the near future.

The news was revealed by studio head Tim Gerritsen on LinkedIn, in which he said that the developer would be shutting its doors in February and tried to help find roles for both himself and the other staff that are going to need new jobs.

"It's with great sadness that I have to report that the decision has been made to close Fantasy Flight Interactive next month," he wrote.

"I'm proud of the team and the game we've dedicated ourselves to for the past few years. It's a been an amazing journey with even more amazing people. I'm going to do my best to get my team placed in new positions. I have programmers, designers, artists, QA staff and a producer to get placed in new roles and will do my best to do so quickly."

Fantasy Flight was opened by Asmodee back in 2017 to work on video game versions of its tabletop output. The company's first release was The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game, which debuted on PC in August 2019 ahead of a console launch the following November.
