The conclusion to the BioShock Infinite saga begins in just two weeks with the release of Burial at Sea Episode 2. It also marks the end of Irrational games as we know it, as the studio will be winding down and letting go of 70 employees and 5 contractors.

As another step in helping find jobs for those employees, Irrational has published a video featuring some of them discussing their proudest moments working on the DLC. In addition to their names and roles, the studio has included contact information, including personal websites and LinkedIn profiles.

Irrational Games founder Ken Levine announced in mid-February that he will be starting a new, smaller studio with approximately 15 members of the existing staff. The BioShock franchise will be handed off to another 2K Games team.

Last week, 57 studios attended Irrational’s career day, designed to assist the 75 affected individuals find new opportunities.
