The group announced their retirement via a video titled “Epilogue” posted to the Daft Punk YouTube page on Monday morning.

Since then, the group's publicist confirmed the news to Pitchfork. No reason was given for the breakup.

The cinematic video is eight minutes long.

A few minutes into the video, one of the members looks at the other, removes his jacket and reveals an energy pack on the back.

It ends as the sun sets on the pair, while the song 'Touch' from the 2013 album Random Access Memories plays.

Daft Punk are considered to be one of the most influential electronic acts of all time, and have had countless hits since forming in Paris 28 years ago.

Random Access Memories is one of the group's most popular albums, though it divided the critic's opinions.

It added three more Grammys to the act's CV, including Album of the Year.
