Sword Coast Legends Developer n-Space Closes

In a Twitter post by artist Ben Leary, it was announced that Sword Coast Legends developer n-Space will be shutting down. This comes in advance of the console release of Sword Coast Legends, though the developer assures fans that not only will work on the ports continue, but the PC version will continue receiving updates as well.

    We are deeply saddened by the closing of n-Space. Staying alive as a mid-sized independent developer in the games industry is no small feat. Their passion for creating games never faltered and their dedicated team has ended on the high note of completing the console version of Sword Coast Legends. We are working hard with them to realize as much as we can for their team during this difficult time and encourage players to keep an eye on the official website for more details on the launch of Sword Coast Legends on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

This is sad news, but not entirely unexpected. Sword Coast Legends was not received well and currently sits at a 61 metascore/5.5 user score on Metacritic.

As a developer, n-Space has been around since 1994, when they were originally founded by Erick S. Dyke, Dan O’Leary, and Sean Purcell. Sword Coast Legends was their first independently released game.
