Barcelona-based indie developer Lince Works will be closing its doors this April, the company has confirmed. The sad news broke earlier today, when the studio released a statement on its current situation.
Lince Works explains: “The last couple of years have been particularly difficult as we shifted towards the development of new IPs and a new course for the company. We were ambitious about what we wanted to achieve as a studio, but sadly, although we made good progress, the economic context was not favourable and we ran out of time.”
It continues: “It breaks our hearts to know that all the work we have done for the past year will ultimately not come to a completion.”

It’s always a shame to see a development team call it quits, especially when the studio’s previous projects were warmly received. Lince Works is known for stealth action title Aragami (2016) and its sequel, Aragami 2 (2021).
“We will always be grateful to our community and players around the world,” Lince Works writes. It also reassures potential players that Aragami and Aragami 2 will remain available across all platforms, complete with online co-op functionality.
We actually interviewed Lince Works all the way back in 2016, just before the release of Aragami:
We wish everyone at Lince Works all the best for the future.
