The official Facebook page for WipEout 2048 has revealed that the online component for the futuristic racing franchise will still be supported as the future of the series is decided.
"While we wait for news on the future of WipEout, Online play will continue to be supported and there will be plenty of WipEout community events, giveaways and goodies to look forward to!” it reads.
"WipEout's passion will live on - Together we are stronger and together we will keep WipEout alive."
