Aragami Developer Lince Works Is Shutting Down Next Month

By | March 7, 2023

Lince Works, the studio behind Aragami and Aragami 2, is closing its doors next month and pausing development on all future projects indefinitely.

Today, Lince Works announced its impending closure via a post on Twitter.

“We have some important news to share with you,” the post reads. “It is with deep regret that we have to announce that Lince Works will effectively stop the development of new projects indefinitely, starting this April.”

The post explains that the studio’s development of new IPs and its new path as a company were difficult, and “the economic context was not favorable.”

“It breaks our hearts to know that all the work we have done for the past year will ultimately not come to a completion.”

“Although we may be closing our doors, the memories and experiences shared with the team and you, our fans, will remain forever,” the post continues. “Thank you for being part of our journey and for making it an unforgettable one.”

Lince Works assured fans that its two games, including their online co-op modes, will remain accessible on all platforms.

Lince Works was founded in 2014 in Barcelona. The company had multiple “new top secret projects” in development at the time of the announcement, according to its website.

We gave Aragami 2 a 5 in our review, praising its level design and co-op mode but docking points for its bugs and repetitive campaign.
