Behaviour Interactive shutters Santiago studio behind Fallout Shelter

Fallout Shelter developer Behaviour Interactive has shut down its office in Santiago where the game was originally created.

As reported by Gamasutra, the closure of the studio in Chile has affected around 30 jobs at the company. Some of the affected staff have been offered transfers to Behaviour's main studio in Montreal.

"Behaviour's vision for our current projects and future ambition requires important technological and creative innovations," the studio's communications manager said in a statement.

"Our assessment shows the Montreal ecosystem, with its effervescence, its talent pool and training programs, is better suited to achieve our long-term goals. As such, after a long and thoughtful analysis, we have decided to shut down our Santiago studio."

Rumours and rebellion

There were rumours that the Santiago studio had been acquired by Bethesda back in December 2015 following the success of Fallout Shelter. This turned out not to be the case.

Behaviour Interactive is now working on a Fallout Shelter-esque game for Ubisoft called Assassin's Creed Rebellion. It has been in soft launch for several months.
