Take-Two shutters Indie Built dev studio

Bad news for fans of the Xbox 360 launch title, Amped 3, and the recently released Top Spin 2: game publisher Take-Two has closed down their Salt Lake City-based development studio, Indie Built.

Indie Built, previously known as Access Software, was responsible for the popular Links series of golf games, as well as the CD-ROM Tex Murphy adventures (like Under a Killing Moon), before being acquired by Microsoft in 1999. Microsoft sold the studio to Take-Two in 2004 becoming part of their 2K Sports brand. The Gamasutra news piece hints that the closure might be due to the lackluster sales of Amped 3; sounds to us like another victim of the historically tumultuous generational transition.
