Luminous Productions, the ‘Forspoken’ studio, will be absorbed by Square Enix
The studio behind Forspoken, Luminous Productions, will be closing shortly. The staff will be absorbed by parent firm Square Enix and sent to other projects. The publisher established the company, which comprised Final Fantasy XV creators, in 2018 to build on new brands, although Forspoken was its sole title as a solo studio.
In a statement, Luminous said that its staff would return under Square Enix’s direct control on May 1st. Meanwhile, the devs will continue to work on an update to fix Forspoken’s performance difficulties, as well as an expansion set to release this summer.
