Sony is ending its partnership with SuperBot Entertainment, the developer of Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale. This is due to underwhelming sales of the title, which surely hasn't met Sony's expectations. By cutting ties with the studio, SuperBot is unable to work on Battle Royale any longer, and production of future content will be moved to Sony’s Santa Monica Studio.
Early reports suggested that SuperBot would cease to exist without Sony's support, but director of operations David Yang confirmed that the studio will continue to develop independently.
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.
