Developer V1 Interactive, the studio founded by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto, has announced it will be closing down, less than a year after the launch of its debut game Disintegration. Lehto founded V1 Interactive in 2016, and Disintegration - a sci-fi-hued blend of first-person shooter and real-time strategy game set against a futuristic backdrop of climate change, pandemic, and war - launched in June last year. Unfortunately, the game's multiplayer component - supported by a real-money in-game store - struggled to find a significant enough audience, and V1 ultimately decided to end multiplayer support in November, just five months into the game's life.

In its latest Halo Waypoint, the developer talked candidly about its "challenging challenges" - including a new seasonal challenge to unlock the Mister Chief helmet that's "been causing quite a bit of grief" - as well as outlining penalties for unsporting Spartans who quit mid-game.
