Following Blackman’s departure, Nick Baynes, General Manager of Hangar 13’s UK office in Brighton, is set to take over as Head of Hangar 13.

The reason given for Blackman’s departure from Hangar 13 was the developer’s passion for a new endeavor. 2K thanked the former employee for his development contribution and wished him well.

Blackman was at the helm of Hangar 13 in 2012 (the studio officially launched in 2014), helping her release Mafia 3, a remake of the original Mafia and a re-release of Mafia 2. Neither game was in perfect technical condition.

In November 2021, 2K reported a $53 million loss due to the cancellation of an unannounced Hangar 13 project that had been in development since 2017 and was rumored to be a superhero competition.
