Or so I've heard.

Yes i have heard that SuperBot was contracted. These guys will most likely get jobs at Santa Monica, continuing to support the community and the game.

I believe this is true but they had pretty heavy ties to sony and Sony Santa Monica specifically

A mod merges my thread and accidentally deletes all the text. Classy.

The part that disturbs me is the part about Santa Monica Studio taking over development. I have a lot of respect for Santa Monica Studio, but does anyone else feel like this means that any potential future DLC characters and even stages won't.......I dunno, 'fit'? Kat and Emmett and Fearless are being made by Superbot currently, the same people that made the rest of the game, but switching development over for future stuff will mean that future stuff will feel different or out of place.

SuperBot did amazing, especially considering it was their first size

Hmm, well having Santa Monica work on patches & DLC may actually be good news, considering how established and well known they are (keep in mind, Seth Killian works for Santa Monica, not SuperBot).

Hopefully SuperBot, or the team atleast find more work.

If they do close, they'll probably be absorbed into Sony Santa Monica studios. I hope they stay open though, I love this game and I think it was great for their first game.

Yeah, SB being absorbed into SM could be a blessing in disquise really. SM could utilize some servers, improve stability, and plus they are a lot more experience ( no credit taken away from Superbot who are great). 

 

But we shouldnt go crazy before anything is really set in stone.

I'm actually happy about this. I don't think Superbot was that great of a studio anyway.
