A two-decade old journey coming to an end!

Kiloo Games, the co-developer of the popular Subway Surfers, has reportedly served all the employees with a termination warning by the end of the month. This is raising concerns about the future of the company, which has led to speculation about a possible shutdown or closure of Kiloo Games, although there hasn’t been any official confirmation on this.

Kiloo Games’ last title was released back in 2022

Kiloo Games was founded in 2000 by Jacob Møller in a small apartment in Aarhus, Denmark. Over the years. In 2002, Kiloo transitioned from a partnership to a private company. After spending a decade in the industry, in 2012, KILOO experienced significant success with the release of Subway Surfers, co-developed with SYBO Games.

The endless runner quickly gained worldwide recognition and became one of the most downloaded mobile games of all time. Following Metroland’s release in 2022, although one would expect Kiloo to drop more such brilliant titles to the mobile platforms, they might have decided against it.

Thomas Frøhlich, Director of Game Design at Kiloo, shared a post via his LinkedIn, regarding the situation. He wrote: “I’ve seen passion, dedication, frustration, anger and it’s clear that the road to a great game is not always straightforward. 12 years later the journey with Kiloo ends as all employees have been served with a warning about termination by the end of the month.”
