Finnish studio Housemarque, created in 1995 as a result of the merger of Bloodhouse and Terramarque, has long been involved mainly in arcade games. However, it is best known for its latest game Returnal, a third-person action roguelike that was a huge success. Shortly after its release, the studio was bought by Sony. Returnal’s game director was Harry Krueger, who worked at the studio for 14 years but has now announced that he has decided to leave.
“In my 14 years at Housemarque, I have been fortunate enough to work on one dream project after another, and have been fortunate to work with some truly talented and wonderful people.” Kruger said this in a press release. “It has been an honor to accompany Housemarque on this journey, watching our small arcade games grow to the magnificent heights we have achieved with Returnal.” According to him, leaving the studio was a very difficult decision, and, unfortunately, we do not know the exact reason or what Kruger’s plans for the future are.
One way or another, as for the future of Housemarque, even the press release itself says that the developers are already working on a new big project. We’ll probably have to wait a while to find out exactly what it’s all about.
