Sony has cut ties with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale developer SuperBot Entertainment, and will be handing off downloadable content development to one of its internal studios.
The news was reported earlier today, and has been confirmed in an email by SuperBot director of operations David Yang.
In the statement, Yang said that the break was amicable, explaining, "SuperBot Entertainment can confirm that the relationship with SCEA has ended on good terms. We are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work on with Sony on Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, and are extremely proud of the work we have done. SuperBot Entertainment will continue working on projects that reflect our passion for games and our commitment to creating award winning titles. We are very excited about beginning the next chapter of our future and invite all of our fans and supporters to follow our journey."
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale was released on the 20th November 2012 as an answer to Nintendo's popular Smash Bros. Brawl franchise. The game received lukewarm reviews (74 on Metacritic), and suffered dismal sales, moving 410K globally since its launch on the PlayStation 3, and 140K on the Vita.
