League of Geeks goes in hiatus

Indie developer League of Geeks is going on hiatus. 

In a post on the company's website, the studio's co-founders Ty Carey, Trent Kusters, and Blake Mizzi wrote that the outfit is taking a break, with no return date planned yet. It's also possible the studio will never return. As always, this decision has been made due to the global macroeconomic situation. 

As for League of Geeks' current titles, the company has said that Solium Infernum is no longer in active development as its sales revenue has not been high enough. The firm has also been unable to find investment for Jumplight Odyssey, but it hopes to launch the title to Early Access within the next year. 

"With over 13 years under our belt as an entirely independent studio, and the economic situation in games being what it is right now, we have made the decision to put LoG into hibernation for the foreseeable future and take some extended time off," the co-founders wrote. 

"The vast majority of our team have moved on to exciting new endeavours and those who remain are going to take a well deserved break over the next few months.

"We’re not sure when (or if) we will resurrect this great beast, but we’re incredibly proud of all we’ve achieved, both in the experiences we’ve crafted together, the great developers who made LoG a world-class development environment, the peers we inspired along the way, and of course, those community members who believed in what we made, how we made it, and supported us fiercely in those convictions.

"Now it's time for rest, some play, and other opportunities."
