The lights are on
We reported last month that SuperBot Entertainment, developers of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (read our review), issued a significant number of layoffs. Today we’ve learned that Sony has severed its relationship with SuperBot on friendly terms.
"Sony Computer Entertainment can confirm that the working agreement with developer SuperBot Entertainment has amicably ended," said a Sony representative in correspondence with Kotaku. "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."
SuperBot shares Sony’s positive perspective on the former partnership, and is “very excited about beginning the next chapter of [its] future…”, according to director of operations David Yang.
No more staff reductions are planned for the immediate future, but SuperBot states “…it is unlikely we can continue with our current work force for an extended period of time.”
