It has been announced just recently via Kotaku that Sony has decided to cut ties with SuperBot Entertainment, better known to many as the creators on PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. This news comes off the heels from their announcement a few days back that they had to lay off some of their staff members. All of the title’s future content will be handled by the Santa Monica Studio.A representative for Sony had this to say:
“Sony Computer Entertainment can confirm that the working agreement with developer SuperBot Entertainment has amicably ended.
We have had a positive working relationship with this talented studio, and wish them the best of success in their next endeavor. PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale and the title’s forthcoming DLC releases will continue to be fully supported by Santa Monica Studio.”
Responding to a query from Kotaku, SuperBot Entertainment’s president David Yang had this to say:
“SuperBot Entertainment can confirm that the relationship with SCEA has ended on good terms. We are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work on with Sony on Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, and are extremely proud of the work we have done. SuperBot Entertainment will continue working on projects that reflect our passion for games and our commitment to creating award winning titles. We are very excited about beginning the next chapter of our future and invite all of our fans and supporters to follow our journey.”
Following up with asking about whether or no there will be more layoffs, Yang states:
“We don’t have a reduction plan as of yet, however it is unlikely we can continue with our current work force for an extended period of time. We are still working things out and hope to continue on with as many of us as possible.”
