Onoma, the studio formerly known as Square Enix Montreal, will be shutting down mobile titles Arena Battle Champions, Deus Ex Go, Hitman Sniper: The Shadows, and Space Invaders: Hidden Heroes on January 4.

2023. Breaking the news on social media, the Embracer-owned studio said that in-game purchases for those titles will be stopped immediately, and that all four will be removed from app stores on December 1, 2022, before being scrapped.Square Enix Montreal was purchased by Embracer Group earlier this year alongside other key Square Enix studios and franchises, including Tomb Raider and Deus Ex.
