Robert Bowling's Robotoki has closed up shop, Joystiq has confirmed.

"This week we have ceased operations at Robotoki and the development of Human Element is on hiatus," Bowling told us in a statement. "We were actively negotiating a new publishing deal for the premium version of Human Element but unfortunately I was unable to continue to self-fund development until a deal was finalized."

Bowling opened up the studio in 2012, after being the creative strategist and hype man for Call of Duty at Infinity Ward. The latest update on Human Element came two months ago when it was announced the class-based, apocalyptic zombie survival game would no longer be free to play when it launched on PC in November 2015.

Update: Robotoki have posted a farewell blog post and video.
