Superbot “shrinks” but survives after split with Sony


Superbot Entertainment has “substantially shrunk down” its studio after its partnership with Sony ended earlier this year. It also confirmed to us that it is working on a new IP.

The Culver City, California studio developed PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale in partnership with Sony, and shipped the title at the end of last year. In February, Sony and Superbot issued a joint statement confirming that the relationship has ended, but on good terms.

It had been suggested to us by one source that the studio was in the process of being closed, but Superbot’s director of operations David Yang said this was not the case. “We have substantially shrunk down our operations but are still going strong while we work on a new IP,” he told us.
