2K Australia Shutting Down

Apr 15, 2015 by

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Developers set to close doors in Australia permanently.

2K Australia, the developers of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, will be closing their doors permanently, leaving Australia devoid of its last AAA studio.

In a statement to Kotaku Australia, an inside source confirmed that the costs of operating in Canberra may be to blame, and that everyone in the studio would soon be losing their jobs. It certainly appears that “all hands are gone,” as the source indicates.


In a statement to Kotaku Australia, 2K had the following to say:

We can confirm we have taken steps to begin the studio closure process for 2K Australia in order to better manage ongoing development costs while improving the working proximity of our creative teams. We are very grateful for the team’s valuable contributions to numerous 2K projects, and are working with affected staff to explore reassignment opportunities where possible.
