The developer behind the original Prey, Rune, and The Quiet Man is shutting down after 22 years. In a blog post today, Human Head Studios revealed that it would be winding down due to “economic realities,” with action-RPG Rune II being its final hurrah. Fortunately, Bethesda has picked up the entire staff and moved them to a newly formed studio called Roundhouse Studios.

“We reached out to our friends at Bethesda for help, and they saw that same creativity and passion in our team. With the formation of Roundhouse Studios, Bethesda offered every employee of Human Head a position at the new company. We are excited our team will remain together, pursuing the work we love, as part of a company we already know and admire.”
