Sony has announced the closure of Evolution Studios, the creators of Motorstorm and Driveclub series of racing games. This move has been quite surprising considering that their latest game, Driveclub, despite having a troublesome launch managed to be quite a success among the players thanks to the long term support of the studio improving and updating with content the game for more than a year. The latest DLC of the game was launched not further back than this very Tuesday. And a VR version of the game was being developed for the upcoming Playstation VR.
Sony claims that they’re going to try reallocating some of the talent from Evolution to other studios. And that the closure of Evolution in no way means the end of the support for Driveclub.
I wish the best to the folks at Evolution.
