PlayStation London Studio has officially closed its doors

Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PlayStation London Studio has officially closed its doors.

Founded in 2002 and based in Soho, London, the first-party studio worked on The Getaway series and was responsible for the Singstar franchise.

It also developed numerous games for PlayStation’s EyeToy camera, Wonderbook, and PlayStation VR titles VR Worlds and Blood & Truth.

More recently it had been working on an online co-op combat game set in a fantasy London.

In February, Sony announced plans to close the studio as part of wider cuts that would see the PS5 maker lay off 900 employees worldwide, or about 8% or its workforce.

“For over twenty years London Studio has been home to some exceptionally talented and wonderful people in the games industry,” the studio said in a farewell message.

“As we close the doors, and all go forward to new adventures, we wanted to say a heartfelt thank you, to all our past and present, players and colleagues who have supported us over the years. We’ve had one wild and wonderful journey!

PlayStation’s recent restructuring also led to job losses at Spider-Man studio Insomniac, Last of Us developer Naughty Dog, and Horizon Call of the Mountain creator Firesprite.

Commenting on the move, Hermen Hulst, who has since been appointed as PlayStation’s ******-CEO, said the company was “reevaluating” how it operates and that the layoffs had resulted in the cancellation of unnamed game projects.
