Reliable sources have confirmed to IGN that there were layoffs at Sony Santa Monica Studio today. The Sony-owned, exclusive developer – founded in 1999 – is best known for its God of War games. The extent of the damage remains unclear, though there are indications that one of the projects the studio was working on has been cancelled alongside this round of layoffs.
This explains why they haven’t shown anything for next gen despite working on it for four years now. The project was probably in development hell. Great news for the non-existent PS4 exclusive line up. If their biggest studio is struggling, what hope do other studios have?
Also, lol at everyone who said games will come when I bitched about major Sony studios being a no-show at every trade show at and since E3.
Worst start possible for the PS4.
