The independent game company Robotoki, which was formed by Robert Bowling has closed it’s doors and the development of their upcoming open-world online multiplayer, Human Element has been put on hold.
“This week we have ceased operations at Robotoki and the development of Human Element is on hiatus, Bowling told Joystiq.
We were actively negotiating a new publishing deal for the premium version of Human Element but unfortunately I was unable to continue to self-fund development until a deal was finalized.”
Robotoki has a deal to launch Human Element as a free-to-play title with publisher Nexon. However, Bowling announced in November 2014 that Nexon and Robotoki ended their partnership after the game switched to a “premium experience.”
Bowling promised a new publisher announcement for Human Element in December 2014, but that never happened.
The game takes place 35 years after the zombie apocalypse began. It features a “cinematic, immersive, first-person experience, and combines innovative new streaming and segmented world massively multiplayer online game technologies to achieve a large open-world MMO experience while maintaining the high visual fidelity of a first-person shooter”.
Human Element was set for a November 2015 release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
