SuperBot Entertainment, the studio behind the Sony-themed fighting game PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, was hit by a round of layoffs today.

In a statement to IGN, Sony confirmed the news, saying in part: "SCEA can confirm that SuperBot Entertainment did make a reduction in their workforce today. The studio and SCEA remain committed to supporting PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale post launch, including developing the title’s forthcoming DLC releases in the coming months.”

PlayStation All-Stars generally received average reviews (Game Informer included), which probably has something to do with the current state of affairs at SuperBot.

With that and the whole THQ business, this week has not been good. Our best wishes to those affected by the layoffs.
