Black Ops: Declassified
and Resistance: Burning Skies
developer Nihilistic Software
is reorganizing and reforming, with a focus on moving from retail game development towards downloadable, online, and mobile markets. The California-based company today announced
it's renaming itself as nStigate following a reorganization that won't see any "planned layoffs," but will see its staff base shrink across the coming months.
Founded in 1998, Nihilistic debuted two years later with the macabre RPG Vampire: The Masquerade
. The studio more recently came into prominence on PlayStation Vita, releasing Burning Skies
and being hired by Activision to develop Call of Duty for Sony's new handheld. Black Ops: Declassified
releases next month and Nihilistic assured gamers on Twitter
the coming transition won't affect any current projects.
