Yesterday, a handful of former Fuzzyeyes Studios employees told Kotaku that steampunk-style role-playing game Edge of Twilight had ceased development and that the developer had been hit with substantial layoffs. Today the developer responds.
Fuzzeyes reps deny that the developer is shutting down and that Edge of Twilight development will continue in January. Reps confirm that development had been put on hold in early October due to unspecified reasons.
“Currently all outsourcing parties still working hard on EOT development,” said a Fuzzyeyes rep.
The former Edge of Twilight developers we heard offered a less encouraging picture of the game’s fate, intimating that disputes with the game’s publisher Southpeak Interactive were partly to blame for the game’s development issues.
