Sony have closed all connections with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale developers SuperBot Entertainment, it has been confirmed tonight. The Smash Bros-esque brawler crashed at retail, despite some hugely positive reviews.
“SuperBot Entertainment can confirm that the relationship with SCEA has ended on good terms,” says SuperBot’s director of operations David Yang. “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.”
The studio recently laid off a large number of staff.
Sony have been condensing their roster of studios over the last year or so, with Sony Liverpool being a notable recent casualty. Call of Duty Vita developers Nihilistic were another, and Starhawk developers Lightbox Interactive moved on from console development last year.
