Sony has confirmed with IGN that PlayStation All-Stars developer SuperBot has laid off a number of its staff. An SCEA spokesperson told the publication that work would continue on PlayStation All-Stars DLC to be released in the next few months despite the smaller staff at the studio. Sony did not confirm just how much of the staff had been laid off.
"SCEA can confirm that SuperBot Entertainment did make a reduction in their workforce today," read a statement from SCEA. "The studio and SCEA remain committed to supporting PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale post launch, including developing the title’s forthcoming DLC releases in the coming months."
The studio was launched in 2009 by Sony Santa Monica executive producer Shannon Studstill. The California-based studio released its first title, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, in November of last year.
