Justin Roiland Resigns From Squanch Games

Justin Roiland has resigned from his position at Squanch Games, effective as of January 16, 2023. The studio is known for Trover Saves The Universe and the recent hit High on Life.

This announcement comes on the heels of Adult Swim announcing they cut ties with Roiland after he was charged with felony domestic battery this month. Per NBC News, the charges include false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud, and/or deceit.

The creator of Rick & Morty was initially arrested in August 2020 before being released on a $50,000 bond over his charges. In October 2020, Roiland pled not guilty to all the charges against him. His next hearing is set to happen this April.

Kotaku reports that a former producer at Squanch Games was sued in 2018 for sexual harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination. Eventually, after denying the claims levied against the studio, the matter was settled with former employee Sarah Doukakos. She said former technical director Jeff Dixon was the culprit and complained to management about his actions, however, they were never addressed.
