There's a bit of sad news coming out of Housemarque today: veteran Finnish developer Antti Kallioinen has passed away. Having worked in the industry for many years all around the world, Kallioinen joined the Resogun developer in 2012 in order to serve as the Art Lead on its upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, Alienation.
"Antti Kallioinen passed away suddenly at the age of 42 on 24th February," a reflective blog post by the studio states. "At the time of his death, Antti was finalising Alienation together with the rest of the crew as the Art Lead of the team." The title will release on 26th April, making this news all the more poignant.
"Antti is survived by his partner and family. His co-workers and colleagues here at Housemarque want to offer their condolences to all," the blog post concludes. "Let the good memories of Antti live on." We'd, obviously, like to extend our thoughts to Kallioinen's family, friends, and work colleagues as well.
