Playdead co-founder leaves Limbo dev after 10 years

"I feel that I'm leaving the company in a state where it can definitely manage itself, and I wish best of luck to Arnt and the rest of the team in the future."

Playdead co-founder Dino Patti is leaving the Limbo and Inside developer after 10 years.

Breaking the news on Twitter, Patti expressed a desire to seek out new challenges after "building Playdead from an idea to two dents in the games industry."

Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, the co-founder revealed he has sold his remaining shares in the studio to his business partner, Arnt Jensen.

"It's been amazing journey, where I've been lucky to work with some extremely talented people and partners," Patti told GamesIndustry.

"I feel that I'm leaving the company in a state where it can definitely manage itself, and I wish best of luck to Arnt and the rest of the team in the future."

Inside, Playdead's visually arresting sophomore effort, was met with critical applause when it arrived on Xbox One on June 29.

The team will be talking about how they bring those unique, high-fidelity visuals to life at this year's GDC Europe conference

Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech
