Microsoft officially shuttered Xbox Entertainment Studios as president Nancy Tellem and executive vice president Jordan Levin were let go on Wednesday, Variety reports.

Microsoft confirmed in July that it’s closing down Xbox Entertainment Studios and future efforts to bring quality TV content to its Xbox One console. While a majority of staff were let go, key members from the company stayed on to oversee its original programming in production, such as Halo TV and Halo: Nightfall.

Reports later surfaced in August that the Santa Monica-based company was looking for a new home and was in preliminary talks with Warner Bros.. However, sources said at the time that the deal was unlikely.

Halo: Nightfall will be packaged with Halo: The Master Chief Collection when it launches in November. Halo TV, the live-action series from Steven Spielberg, is slated to premiere late next year and the first episode of upcoming documentary series, Signal to Noise, is still scheduled for release. Production of the live action show portion of Quantum Break also isn’t affected by the closure of Xbox Entertainment Studios and will be released next year.
