SuperBot Entertainment, the studio behind PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, was recently plagued with layoffs, and now it has more bad news: Sony is ending its relationship with the studio.
According to speculation, Sony wasn’t pleased with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. The game received generally favorable reviews across the board, but nothing spectacular. Sony will now handle all future releases through Santa Monica Studio. Sony released this statement on the matter:
“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.”
SuperBot also released its own statement, saying:
“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.”
