Sony Interactive Entertainment in February of this year announced it was laying off about 900 employees , as well as shutting down PlayStation's London Studio.

London Studio in a statement on Twitter announced it has closed its doors today.

"For over twenty years London Studio has been home to some exceptionally talented and wonderful people in the games industry," said the developer.

"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!"

London Studio was developing an online cooperative combat game for the PlayStation 5. The studio previously developed a range of EyeToy games, SingStar games, and more. The team also assisted in the development of other PlayStation titles, including Killzone 2 and LittleBigPlanet.

A life-long and avid gamer, William D'Angelo was first introduced to VGChartz in 2007. After years of supporting the site, he was brought on in 2010 as a junior analyst, working his way up to lead analyst in 2012 and taking over the hardware estimates in 2017. He has expanded his involvement in the gaming community by producing content on his own YouTube channel and Twitch channel. You can contact the author on Twitter @TrunksWD.

From a business standpoint this is actually a smart move. London has been a dead weight studio for over a decade, Sony funds are better spent elsewhere.

Shame but understandable. They produced some great stuff which definitely had an influence on the industry but haven't made anything in a while. I do not even think a co-op combat game is their style, another forced GaaS is not the way to go.
