After seeing layoffs just a week ago, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale developer SuperBot Entertainment is now being left behind by Sony Computer Entertainment. Despite the recent bad news, the developer is optimistic about the future.
Kotaku spoke with a Sony representative, who confirmed that SCEA and SuperBot Entertainment’s working relationship has “amicably ended”. The representative assures that PlayStation All-Stars and any DLC in the game’s future will be supported by Santa Monica Studio.
David Yang, director of operations over at SuperBot, got in touch with Kotaku to clear up rumors that the studio was going to have to shut down without Sony’s support. Yang backs up Sony’s claim that the split was on “good terms” and continues, stating that they are “very excited about beginning the next chapter of our future”.
While David Yang seems optimistic, the developer may have to let more employees go over the coming months. Only the future knows, but hopefully they will be able to find their footing before it comes time to let people go.
