Sony Part Ways With PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Developer
Sony has parted ways with Superbot Entertainment, the team behind the PS3 and Vita brawler PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
Sony confirmed the decision to end their relationship with the developer in a statement to Kotaku:
“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.”
Superbot’s director of operations David Yang provided a statement regarding the amicable separation and said the studio doesn’t have any plans to reduce its staff at this current time, however, that could change soon. “It is unlikely we can continue with our current work force for an extended period of time,” Yang says. “We are still working things out and hope to continue on with as many of us as possible.”
Superbot’s statement reads as follows:
“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.”
We enjoyed Superbot’s PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale back in November, despite the obvious influence of Nintendo’s acclaimed brawler.
