A look at Airtight Games' shooter Fate, canned(?) back in April

I don't believe that is the project Kim Swift is working on, but I have been unable to ascertain that for sure.

Who knows if it's actually canned completely, but it seems like the team working on it was let go.

Has a Bioshock kind of feel to it.

Cancel Swift's game and everyone will go back to not caring about the studio, would be a bad move.

Fate would be an interesting name for her game, if it's what she wanted Portal 2 to be, time manipulation based.
