Whereas Insomniac Games struck a deal with EA Partners to expand onto Xbox 360 with OverStrike, Sucker Punch is headed in the other direction. Sony announced it's purchasing the studio in the wee hours of this morning (or, if you're me, late at night).
No financial terms of the deal were disclosed, but this deal puts another solid studio (16 total!) under Sony's roof.
"We've enjoyed an incredible relationship with Sony that has allowed us to combine our creative design capabilities with their guidance to make some of the best franchises to hit the PlayStation platforms," said Sucker Punch managing partner Brian Flemingin the press release. "Equally important, the relationship with SCE has provided us the flexibility and trust to take creative risks and invent new properties."
Sucker Punch and Sony most recently collaborated on inFamous 2, released back in June.
