Formed in 2006, Deep Silver Vienna has already been closed down by parent company Koch Media. The developer’s first – and only – title was the Wii-exclusive horror adventure Cursed Mountain. The game sold miserably.
“This decision is not easy for us,” Koch said in a statement, going on to mention the current economic situation. Deep Silver Vienna’s staff of 20 will be paid until March before being let go. It’s hoped that some will land new positions in Koch Media.
Rumours suggest that co-founder Hannes Seifert has already secured a role at Square Enix Europe.
