The lights are on
When Sony announced the conclusion of its relationship with PlayStation All-Stars developer Superbot, many thought that closure was right around the corner. Even before the announcement in February that Superbot and Sony had "amicably ended" their relationship, the Culver City, California studio suffered layoffs.
Things looked grim, but brighter days are ahead for the developer. Superbot director of operations David Yang told Edge that not only is the studio still alive and kicking, but a new IP is in the works. We've reached out to Superbot for more information on their next project and will update when information is available.

The game is pretty fun, I just bought it yesterday. Good thing Superbot didn't bite the dust.
They're alive and they're making a new IP?! Wonder what it is.
Finally, a developer isn't screwed over. My friend brought over her copy of PASBR and I loved it, it's been on my 'must buy' list for a while now. If they can make something as awesome as PASBR, I'll be waiting for that new IP.
Great to hear that we will be getting more from this studio. Playstation Allstars was underrated in my opinion.
GIO did a Test Chamber on this game and their feelings on the game perfectly matched with mine. I hope Superbot makes some great and unique!
cant wait to see what they bring
Good game but ad marketing could've been better and could have add great characters from the PS1 era like Crash B. Spyro, Cloud and Sephiroth, Snake, Mega Man, few Resident Evil stars, Gabe Logan, just to name a few comes to mind.
Good for them. Hate seeing studios close up shop. Hopefully they find success with their next game.
I ended up grabbing All Stars when it was on sale for Vita, it's a pretty good game so I wish them the best.
