The Viking fantasy action-RPG launched in November 2019 then, the very next day, developers Human Head announced they were shutting down but their employees had been hired for a new Bethesda studio. This was quite a surprise, even to the publishers…

Rune 2’s publisher is suing the former developers for control of the game’s code

Nordic action-RPG Rune 2 released on November 12th. The next day, its developers Human Head Studios announced their closure and that all of its development team were offered new positions at a new studio with Bethesda.

Rune 2 publishers surprised by Human Head’s closure, vow to continue support

It's been a wild week for Human Head Studios. They finally launched Rune 2, the oft-delayed sequel to their third-person Viking murderer from way back in the year 2000, then shut down and immediately reformed under Bethesda as Roundhouse Studios. I was surprised by this, but my surprise is nothing compared to what Rune 2's publishers felt. "We found out about this news when you…

Unfortunately, Human Head's latest would turn out to be their last.

It's been a heck of a ride for Rune 2 this past year. So far the game has been renamed, moved over to the Epic Games Store, and delayed from its original summertime release date. Ah, but today is a new day, friends. Human Head Studios, the game developer I keep having to remind myself isn't a bit from Community, has announced its Hot Viking…

Rune: Ragnarok rebrands as Rune 2 and sets sail for a summer launch

Rune 2 - formerly known as Rune: Ragnarok - nearly ready, and now apparently signed up to launch on Epic this summer. Developed by Human Head Games, the long-standing studio probably known best for their work on Prey (the dumb fast shooter one with the portals, not the other one) are returning to their roots. Now officially a numbered sequel, it's a Viking-themed mythological hack…

Prey For Rune 2

With official confirmation still lacking as to whether Prey 2 is currently bleeding out by the bins out the back of Bethesda HQ or if the great hunt will yet continue, one of the many additional questions is what might become of developer Human Head. Sounds like they're pondering a resurrection of their first game, viking-based brawler Rune. The 2000 Unreal-powered stabbing'n'jumping title is, apparently,…
