New Wipeout Title Was Under Development For PS4 At Sony Liverpool

New Wipeout Title Was Under Development For PS4 At Sony Liverpool

According to a Eurogamer report, Wipeout PS4 was being developed at Sony liverpool before Sony announced the studios’ closure today.

The PS4 Wipeout title was already 18 months into development, and was “dramatically different” than former games in the franchise.

The source also said Liverpool was working on a game similar to Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell series, leading some to believe it might have been Syphon Filter PS4.

Sometimes when a studio is closed, the games it was developing would be turned over to other development houses, but unfortunately all Sony Liverpool efforts were for naught, as all the games were cancelled with its closure.

    It was have been wise for Sony to complete the PS4 games and then shutter if it must… But now’s just unfortunate.

    Yeah my thoughts exactly all those months, days, minutes. Just wasted, What Is Wring With Sony? This game could have been really good for the PS4! I feel like they just don’t want good games and just want to screw with us.

    Also I was really hoping for a new WipEout game on the Vita maybe WipEout 2025 like the one in the in-game start up video. Wow just wow. Sony sucks.

    I think it was a bad decision, especially when Sony’s wasted money on 3D and what not, millions…. why shutter a development house that represents so much… And they’ve been making great games!

    Makes no sense at all. These games would have added more value to PS4 once it’s released next year. I mean, if a game’s 18 months into development, why kill it now…?
