The developer behind PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has dispelled recent rumors that the studio is set to shut up shop.
Speaking with EDGE, SuperBot Entertainment director of operations, David Yang, confirmed the company is beavering away on new IP, but did reveal it has downsized considerably following All-Stars’ release.
“We have substantially shrunk down our operations, but are still going strong while we work on a new IP,” said Yang.
SuperBot confirmed on February 4 that it had called time on its working agreement with Sony, issuing the following statement:
"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."
Based in Culver City, California, SuperBot has only released one title to date, the aforementioned PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The company was founded in 2009 by Sony Santa Monica executive producer, Shannon Studstill.
