Hollowpoint on hold after creative differences cause publisher and developer of co-op action game to part ways

Development on Hollowpoint is on hold as the partnership between Ruffian and Paradox has dissolved. Paradox confirmed the news in a recent statement to Game Watcher.

"Today we would like to announce that the working relationship between Paradox Interactive and Ruffian Games on Hollowpoint has been amicably terminated," a Paradox representative said. "After recent ongoing discussions between the two companies, it became apparent to both parties that the creative vision for the project was diverging and so the decision was ultimately taken to cease our co-operation in order to serve the long-term interests of the game.

"We would like to thank Ruffian Games for all their hard work and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours. Paradox will be re-evaluating the creative direction of Hollowpoint internally before making any final decisions."

Ruffian provided its own statement to Eurogamer, revealing that it hasn't been working on the game for months, roughly around the time an E3 2015 trailer for the co-op PS4 and PC action game was released.

"We ceased working with Paradox on Hollowpoint in Summer 2015 and we wish them well for the future," Ruffian said. "Since then we've continued to work on multiple projects and we released Fragmental on Steam Early Access just last week. We are looking forward to supporting Fragmental with regular feature and content updates towards a launch version later this year."
