Ultra Ultra, the Danish studio made up of ex-IO Interactive developers who released action adventure Echo in 2017, has sadly shuttered its doors according to a tweet from the studio's official account.

The tweet, posted yesterday, said that the team was 'grateful to have had the chance to crystallize something truly from the heart' with Echo. The game itself had a relatively quiet release (here's our preview from the time), but did get picked up for a movie adaptation just in January this year, with Deadline reporting that John Wick creator Derek Kolstad was being brought aboard to direct the screenplay.

Echo itself will remain on sale for both PC and PlayStation 4 in spite of the studio's shuttering. Videogamer wishes the best for all those effected by the closure.
