Sucker Punch Productions, the developer of the PlayStation-exclusive Sly Cooper and inFAMOUS franchises, has suffered an unfortunate round of layoffs.
Sony confirmed the news in a statement to IGN:
“SCEA can confirm a reduction in workforce has taken place at Sucker Punch Productions. Sucker Punch is appreciative of the tremendous work team members contributed to the inFAMOUS and Sly Cooper series, and wishes them the best in their next endeavors.”
Sucker Punch’s inFAMOUS: Second Son DLC, titled inFAMOUS: First Light, is due out on August 26 in North America and August 27th in Europe. We recently learned some new details regarding the upcoming expansion. If First Light has the quality of Second Son, it’s set to be an expansion worth picking up.
Our thoughts go out to everybody affected, and wish them the best in their future endeavours.
