If you want to read the newly posted letter that explains the closure of Boss Key Productions, Bleszinski has the letter up on his Twitter account as featured below. Radical Heights felt a bit unfinished when it made its debut, which ultimately helped to contribute to some of the dissatisfaction players felt for the game, and it seemed just like the "last ditch attempt" Bleszinski describes it as in his statement. The message noted that while their new game was well-received, its success came too late to save it from its failure with a previous game in Lawbreakers. Bleszinski on the other hand plans on taking a break to reevaluate his professional goals and focus on family. "Four years ago today, I set out to make a world-class video game studio, and I hired some of the best talent in the video game industry". He also thanks those who supported himself and Bosskey Productions as well as everyone who worked with him in recent years. He hopes to make something new again someday but for now, he said he needs to withdraw and "take this time". But, turning on a dime, as Cliffy B so often does, he produced battle royale game Radical Heights seemingly out of nowhere!

Yesterday, the studio head at Boss Key Productions, Cliff Bleszinski announced that the studio has been shut down, finito.

First formed back in April 2014, the development studio's first title, LawBreakers, tried to challenge the likes of Overwatch but failed to maintain a solid audience despite critical acclaim.

The company's initial objective was the creation of a so-called "arena shooter", the project that eventually became "LawBreakers".

For now, Radical Heights servers will stay online, although they will undoubtedly close down before too long. The Battle Royale title was riddled with technical issues and incomplete design decisions that seemingly squandered the reasonable amount of hype it garnered upon its release.
