Marcus lehto, a veteran of the Halo saga, decided to start a project of his own with Disintegration, a tactical first person shooter. The game was released in June 2020 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but despite its good intentions and some original ideas, it did not catch on with gamers and shut down its multiplayer servers in November, just five months later.
Today, they announced on Twitter that they will close the studio, founded five years ago and whose only game to its credit was Disintegration. “We want to thank all the talented people who have passed through V1 and have contributed to making the last five years wonderful”.
At V1, our priority has been to the wellbeing of our employees.
We’ve been transparent with them about the state of things for months and are making this decision now so they still have ample time to search for new jobs while being supported by our studio. https://t.co/XJbWDxazto

Lehto shared the statement, stating that the well-being of your employees is your priority, so they have been transparent with them for months about this decision, so that they can have time to look for a new job while still employees of V1.
The reason for the shutdown of Disintegration’s servers, as reported by V1 and its publisher, Private Division, is that did not receive a sufficient number of players as to maintain the servers.
