2k Australia Studio to Close

2K Australia has been reported to have taken steps to close the last remaining AAA developer in Australia, according to Kotaku.  Located in Canberra, Australia the studio has been involved in the development of games for the past 14 years for both console and PC titles.   The most recent title released from the studio was 2014's:  Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!  The reason for the closure appears to be the high cost to keep the studio running from Australia.   

This is a sad day for the gaming community and the gaming industry alike.  We wish those affected all the best and hope they land back on their feet quickly.  

The following is a full list of games that 2K Australia developed or helped develop:
2002 Freedom Force
2004 Tribes: Vengeance
2005 SWAT 4
2008 BioShock
2010 BioShock 2
2013 BioShock Infinite
2013 The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
2014 Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

Let us know in the comments below what you favorite game from the list is.  I personally have always been a fan of the first BioShock game.
