Sony have announced that Studio Liverpool is being closed. As Wipeout HD was one of my favourite games of this generation, this is a major bummer. What do you guys think will happen to the Wipeout series now?
Studio Liverpool to close
This is depressing. Not only did they make the Wipeout games but even back in their days (when they were used to be called Psygnosis), they made the Destruction Derby franchise and even Lemmings! I really do hope the developers form a new studio of somesort, it'd be a waste to see that amount of talent disappear. As for the Wipeout franchise, I think it's hard to choose which developer could pull off the quality of a Wipeout game.
Looks like the majority of the developers are being offered positions at other Sony studios though, so really it seems it's more Sony deciding that WipEout isn't having the kind of impact it used to and that their talent and the studio budget is better used on other projects.
