Firewall Ultra dev First Contact Entertainment is shutting down

First Contact Entertainment

Firewall series developer First Contact Entertainment has announced they’re shutting down by the end of the year.

The virtual reality-focused developer has been in operation for nearly eight years, most recently launching the Sony-published Firewall Ultra last summer.

First Contact Entertainment was reportedly working on Solaris: Offworld Combat 2 for unspecificed virtal reality platforms.

Here’s the full word from the company:

After almost 8 years of working with the most amazing team I’ve ever have the pleasure of being part of, I’m sad to announce that we will be closing our company First Contact Entertainment by the end of the year. The lack of support for VR within the industry has eventually taken its toll. As a AAA VR game developer, we are just not able to justify the expense needed gouging forward. We are a team of fearless innovators willing to push new technologies to its limits. I am extremely proud of the team and grateful to our investors, our partners and of course our community of dedicated and passionate players. It’s been a wild ride, Thank you!
