    They've essentially got rid of most of the senior programmers, producers, and other assorted members of the development team there.

    AFAIK the lead on WipEout HD, Matt Brooks is still there, but they aren't going to be making any games for the foreseeable future.

    Development was destined to be moved to a new, purpose built premises that would house the folk from Evo and Studio Liverpool anyway, so with that on the road map it's pretty much the end of development at Studio Liverpool for ever.

    I said it in the other post in the off topic section.

    I reckon the evil twin has had a lot to do with this.
    I can well imagine SCEA has said,look these games aren't popular in the USA so let's close the SCEE based studios down that make them.
    Then we at SCEA can make more mindless FPS ,just what the world doesn't need.
    Except in the USA obviously.

    SCEA had **** all to do with it.

    Mick Hocking, boss of Evo had everything to do with it.

    Saddest day ever for all the playstation fans. One of the best development studio in gaming industry wiped out, this is just awful. Hope there's a billionaire around, who's reading this new... Gah. The Wipeout franchise can't die like that. That makes no sense.

    Thanks Sony, you f****d up my day.

    I just realized this....

    Dear Sony - you killed off the last reason for me to own a Playstation console. So you can keep your PS4, 5, 6 or 20 - and shove it up your @$$, as I've got no use for them now.

    What still makes me want to kick them in the face - they never - once - ever - EVER - EVER - EVER aired a single *@($ing advertisement here. Seriously - WTF were you guys thinking?

    If that really means the end for WipEout … well then … it rocks! – NOT.

    At least they still have their jobs. That doesn't save the franchise, but at least the people who brought WipEout to (new) fame.

    EDIT:
    I Though that the people are "only" moved to other Studios. Seems like I got something wrong here. That's even more shít. Well done, Sony, well done. You fúcked it up.
