Remedy Has Canceled Codename Kestrel, Its Cooperative Multiplayer Game

The studio says it canceled Codename Kestrel to focus on other games it’s developing in its portfolio, noting that because of this cancelation, its other projects will get “experienced developers reassigned from Kestrel.”

Plus, Remedy says planned investment and the need to recruit additional employees for Kestrel is removed with this cancelation. 

Codename Kestrel, as a project, began in November 2023 as a reboot from an earlier Remedy project codenamed Vanguard.
