Square Enix has confirmed that Studio Istolia has been closed and its RPG title cancelled:

"Following evaluation of various aspects of Project Prelude Rune, development of the title has been cancelled," a spokesperson told USgamer. "Studio Istolia is no longer in operation and we have been taking appropriate steps to assign studio staff to other projects within the Square Enix Group."

Studio Istolia was founded in 2017 to helm a brand new RPG called Project Prelude Rune, the game which has now been cancelled as a result of this move. The studio had reportedly begun struggling following the departure of Hideo Baba (of Tales Of fame), who had taken up a senior leadership role at the developer.

Sounds like one of those crappy mobile RPGs...but it had some one from the Tales games (which are good) so maybe it was a more ambitious project...I guess we will never know.

Apparently it was a PS4 title and looked fairly ambitious from what I could gather watching the art work...
