The End of Treasure?

Long time SEGA-collaborative developer Treasure Games might be out of the gaming biz, at least for brand new titles according to the latest Giant Bombcast (time stamp: 2:22:20 – 2:24:38). The hardcore cult studio seems to be moving towards becoming more of a license holding company, which isn’t surprising when you consider they hire under 30 employees.

Sad, if true. Radiant Silvergun and Ikaruga are two of the greatest shooters of all time. I always hoped that there would be a third title in the “series”.

Hopefully we will still get some re-releases of older Treasure games on Steam.

My favorite Treasure games are Guardian Heroes and Mischief Makers. I will be sad to see them go. It’s amazing how long they stayed around with so few employees…
