Zombie Studios, opened all the way back in 1994, has closed its doors. Best known for its work on the original Spec Ops games and Blacklight series, Zombie also did a lot of licensed stuff, from Zork games to Saw.

For once, the reason for a studio closing down is not "run out of money" or "publisher being awful". Instead, Zombie's owners are retiring, with Zombie staff - along with the rights and dev work on Blacklight: Retribution - moving over to a new studio, Builder Box.

This makes me feel better. I hate when the reason things shut down are because they run out of money.

(Or because fucking EA buys them and objectively ruins the franchise. Godamnit Westwood Studios. I will never forget this.)
