Sony has shut down its studio PixelOpus, the group behind Concrete Genie and Entwined, the studio introduced on its official Twitter account.
“Expensive mates, our PixelOpus journey has come to an finish. As we glance to new futures, we wished to say a heartfelt thanks to the hundreds of thousands of passionate gamers who’ve supported us, and our mission to make stunning, imaginative video games with coronary heart. We’re so grateful.”
The studio will formally shut on June 2, 2023.
PixelOpus started as a Sony subsidiary when it was established in 2014, and now Sony’s shuttering of the studio comes simply earlier than it might be hitting its 10 yr mark.
There’s been no phrase from PixelOpus or Sony as to what’s going to occur to the folks at PixelOpus, in the event that they’ll be positioned at different groups inside Sony or in the event that they’re all laid off.
Each Entwined and Concrete Genie acquired BAFTA nominations once they launched, and plenty of gamers adored how PixelOpus approached advanced themes of their narratives.
