Arkane Studios is a video game developer based in Lyon, France. It was founded in 1999, and released its first game, Arx Fatalis, in 2002. Arkane Studios opened an Austin, Texas-based office in July 2006.

In December 2006, the company announced its new first-person shooter title, The Crossing, which was later put on hold. In July 2009, 2K Marin announced that Arkane was signed up to help with BioShock 2 development, more specifically "design, animation, and art".

In August of 2010, the company was acquired by ZeniMax.
