We’ve got a bit of depressing news out of Sony this morning as they’ve confirmed that one of their most popular game studios, Sucker Punch, have faced a round of layoffs. We’re not entirely certain how many are involved in the job cuts but the wording from Sony to IGN makes it sound like more than a few.
SCEA can confirm a reduction in workforce has taken place at Sucker Punch Productions. Sucker Punch is appreciative of the tremendous work team members contributed to the inFAMOUS and Sly Cooper series, and wishes them the best in their next endeavors.
The team at Sucker Punch is best known for their work on the Sly Cooper and inFamous franchises, and they’ve been making games exclusively for PlayStation platforms since 2002. Most recently they released inFamous: Second Son on the PS4, and its stand-alone DLC, inFamous: First Light, launches next week.
We here at TSA are sending out all the happy thoughts we can possibly muster to those affected, and hopefully everyone involved lands safely on their feet.
