Two Tribes to stop making games after RIVE

RIVE slated for launch in September.

RIVE

Two Tribes, developer of the Toki Tori series, will stop making video games after 16 years, the developer announced.

In a blog post, Two Tribes explained that the industry moved forward while they were stuck in the past, and that it wants to focus its attention elsewhere. The studio will still remain operational, and continue to support its partners and consumers, but will no longer make video games. But before it stops entirely, it will release on last game, RIVE, this September.

“Long story short (grandfathers like to digress!): when running a company, you need to be on top of your game, not just in terms of the product you’re making, but business-wise too,” Two Tribes said. “And we just aren’t on top of the games business anymore. Therefore, it makes sense to focus our attention elsewhere, perhaps even outside the games industry. We simply don’t know yet; but we do know that RIVE is going to be our parting gift to you and we’re making damn sure it’s going to be an awesome one!”
