Sony has severed all ties with California-based SuperBot Entertainment, the developer it set up specifically to make last year’s under-performing brawler PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
The news comes a fortnight after SuperBot laid off a batch of its staff, and the studio’s long-term prospects are unclear. “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,” said SuperBot boss David Yang to Kotaku.
“We are still working things out and hope to continue on with as many of us as possible,” he added.
Sony’s Santa Monica Studio, which assisted with the development of PlayStation All-Stars, will now shepherd the game and all further downloadable content.
