SOCOM 'is not done,' says Sony Worldwide Studios boss

on 30 July 2012

SOCOM developer Zipper Interactive may have closed its doors, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve seen the last of the popular squad-based shooter franchise.

Speaking with OPM, Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) Worldwide Studios, adopted a ‘never say never’ mentality regarding SOCOM’s future, and acknowledged its continued popularity among fans.

“It's not done. We never definitely retire any franchise. It’s sometimes great to have a fresh look at the classics that we have," he said.

“We are launching a new Sly Cooper game this year after so many years. Never say never. I feel sorry for people who are longtime SOCOM fans, and there are many people who still play SOCOM 1 and SOCOM 2, especially those seem to be their favorites.”

The last SOCOM game was released back in 2011 and introduced PlayStation Move functionality to the series.
