The maker of the hit series BioShock is no longer as Irrational Games is closing its doors for good. In a heartfelt blog post, co-founder Ken Levine wrote that the company will shut down while Levine pursues a new and smaller venture. While the majority of those with Irrational Games will be making the new move as well, Levine did state that 15 employees will be without jobs in the coming months as the game studio closes.

Writing on the official Irrational Games company website, Levine stated:

I am winding down Irrational Games as you know it. I’ll be starting a smaller, more entrepreneurial endeavor at Take-Two. That is going to mean parting ways with all but about fifteen members of the Irrational team. There’s no great way to lay people off, and our first concern is to make sure that the people who are leaving have as much support as we can give them during this transition.

According to the blog post, those who are not making the transition over to Take-Two will be well compensated as they look for other employment. However, the question on gamers minds’ is what will happen to the studio’s hit game BioShock. Levine and the Irrational Games team have developed the last game of the series that will be released on March 25. The game studio co-founder wrote that the game will be taken over by 2K Studios as his new company will focus on narrative based games with more complex storylines and interactive gameplay.

    You got that backward – 15 people are moving with Levine, the rest are out of jobs – it even said that in the quote you listed…
