Rick & Morty creator Justin Roiland has resigned from Squanch Games, the development studio he co-founded when creating High on Life.
A tweet posted by the official High on Life studio Twitter account said Roiland had left last week.
Although no reason for the departure is given, the main cause is likely the fact that Roiland is currently facing domestic violence charges.
“On January 16, 2023, Squanch Games received the resignation of Justin Roiland,” the studio’s brief statement reads.

Roiland was charged in 2020 with one count of domestic battery with bodily harm and one count of false imprisonment for threat, violence, fraud and/or deception, a charge that came to light earlier this month when Roiland appeared in court to a pre-trial hearing. listening.
Roiland was reportedly arrested and released on $50,000 bail in August 2020 and arraigned in October 2020. He pleaded “not guilty” to the charges at the time.
