Re: What say you? Superbot may shut down

Feb 4, 2013

well if superbot was independent then I guess it would be easier for sony to develop the game even more in house

 

my only concern right now is if this will affect any dlc superbot had planned, in a pocast they said they would announce something in march. So I hope that doesn't go to waste or anything

 

I actually like the idea of santa monica working on the game more, they do a good job, and since they are so close to sony maybe we could actually get some of those requested characters. I feel bad for superbot but I'm not worried about playtation allstars

I'm really sorry for the guys who lost their job. I don't understand though, the studio still exists, but not under Sony's wing, or it shut down completely? What about Santa Monica involvement, does this mean we could get DLCs anyway from them and maybe even a sequel?

 

Anyway, I consider PSABR a mediocre game, but it didn't deserve this destiny.

The All-Stars community feels a whole lot smaller and empty now.

 

...Light years away from before the game launched. And it was only 2 months ago.

 

Good luck in your future endeavors, SuperBot. View this as a learning experience.

From what I've gathered - Sony hired SuperBot on contract terms to create the game. They delivered their end of the bargain, now Sony has decided to take the future of the series into its own hands. Santa Monica will be working on future patches & DLC (for however long they feel they need to), and then whatever happens to the possible sequel is up to them. Meanwhile, SuperBot is free to find work where ever they please, if they can't do that though, they may be forced to close down, leaving the team to find work elsewhere.

I'll miss Omar and Clockwork!  D'=

 

EDIT: The update on the Kotaku article makes me feel a lot better about this
