Sony has parted ways with Superbot Entertainment, the developer who recently brought us PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale.
According to a Sony representative “the working agreement with developer SuperBot Entertainment has amicably ended” and support for the mascot brawler will be brought in-house.
“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.”
Since then Superbot Entertainment President David Yang has confirmed 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.”
Despite their upbeat response, the developer will have to consider laying off some of it’s staff. Yang has said that “We don’t have a reduction plan as of yet, however it is unlikely we can continue with our current work force for an extended period of time. We are still working things out and hope to continue on with as many of us as possible.”
