Publisher Bitcomposer files for bankruptcy

Bitcomposer, the publisher of games such as Space Hulk and Jagged Alliance, has filed for bankruptcy after having applied for a protective shield procedure back in September. The company also published Shadowrun Returns in German and Russian.

The procedure was applied for on September 26th and protected the company from creditors while it organised a plan for insolvency, reports Develop.

It was still able to publish titles in the period of time between then and now, and hopes to find an investor at this point to ensure it can continue to operate as a publisher and aid with development.

Bitcomposer claims its problems stem from "the financial difficulties of its suppliers in game development." As a result of this, the publisher states, it could not continue work on new titles and missed financial targets.
