Sony drop Superbot Entertainment

A couple of weeks ago developer Superbot Entertainment had to lay off numerous staff members and the latest news that Sony has amicably ended their working relationship with the company may not come as a surprise to many gamers.

Superbot known for their creation of PlayStation All-Stars is an independent video game developer formerly known as Broodworks, and fans of the latest title are informed that future content will be dealt with by Sony’s internal studios.

PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale and all of the upcoming DLC releases will continue to be fully supported by Santa Monica Studio. According to a source highlighted on Kotaku, Superbot Entertainment may have to shut down altogether, although the company’s director of operations David Yang gives us the impression they are excited about new beginnings.

Further updates mention whether the studio will remain intact with all their employees, Yang didn’t mention any job cuts, although there doesn’t seem to be much confidence considering it is highly unlikely they will be able to continue with the current workforce for much longer.

We empathise with the concerned staff currently in employment and many gamers are worried about DLC and any sequels, while some feel PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale is a fun game, but could have been better, especially if Sony is ending their contract.

In this fickle industry, we wish Superbot Entertainment all the best for the future and hope they continue their good work.

Do you feel there were plenty of deciding factors concerning PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, which has given Sony cause to drop Superbot Entertainment?
