Lawbreakers And Radical Heights Developer Turns In The Keys!

Boss Key Productions – with a pun – hands in the keys – finita la commedia.

The comedy term is intentional: Boss Key wasn’t able to gain traction with the PlayStation 4/PC game LawBreakers, and they tried to get into the battle royale genre – however, Radical Heights might not be completed, as Cliff Bleszinski (CliffyB – Gears of War…) wrote the following on Twitter:

„As of today, Boss Key Productions is effectively no more.

Four years ago I set out to make a world-class video game studio, and I hired some of the best talents in the video game industry. They worked tirelessly to produce quality products and, while we had our ups and downs, I’d like to think we had fun doing it. LawBreakers was a great game that unfortunately failed to gain traction, and, in a last-ditch attempt, we scrambled to do our take on the huge battle royale genre with Radical Heights, which was well received. However, it was too little too late.

As for myself, I’m going to take some time off and reflect. I need to focus on myself and family as well as my Aussie, Teddy, who is slowly fading from us. Video games will forever be a part of who I am, and I hope to make something new again someday. However, I need to withdraw and take this time.

To those of you who have supported myself and the studio these last four years, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart and everyone who came to work for me.

Please note that the servers for Radical Heights will remain up for the near future.

Thanks again,


So CliffyB‘s team sees Game Over, and with Radical Heights, it might be sold to someone (Tencent?) to keep it alive. We’ll see shortly…
