• Sony Closes Zipper Interactive

                The group behind the SOCOM series is no more as Sony has confirmed rumors that it will be closing Zipper Interactive. In a statement to Game Informer, Sony representative said:

                Sony Computer Entertainment can confirm the closure of Zipper Interactive, a Seattle-based internal game development studio that has been part of the global development operation of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS).

                The closure is a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE WWS. Zipper has completed all work associated with its most recent project, Unit 13 for PlayStation Vita. Zipper titles MAG, SOCOM 4 and Unit 13 will continue to be supported, including the new Daily Challenges in Unit 13.

                  Sad about jobs lost, if any. It's not very clear on that. Sounds like they got moved to another part of WWS.
