Sony closes WipEout developer Sony Liverpool
It's a bad week to have a legacy.
WipEout developer Sony Liverpool is being closed by Sony.
Sony issued a statement confirming the closure of the studio: "It has been decided that Liverpool Studio should be closed. Liverpool Studio has been an important part of SCE Worldwide Studios since the outset of PlayStation, and have contributed greatly to PlayStation over the years. Everyone connected with Liverpool Studio, past and present, can be very proud of their achievements."
Formerly known as Psygnosis, Sony Liverpool was acquired by Sony in 2001, and has since developed some of the company's more respected exclusives, such as WipEout HD and WipEout 2048. Rumour has it they were working on a PS4 WipEout before the closure.
