Rumor: SOCOM Studio Zipper Interactive Closed by Sony?


Nothing’s official yet, but Kotaku reports that Zipper is being hit by massive layoffs — big enough to force the studio’s closure.

Middling reviews and poor sales of SOCOM 4 didn’t help Zipper’s cause — they never looked like cracking the lucrative military shooter market in the face of stiff competition. Still, it would be a great shame if the studio behind acknowledged classics like MechWarrior 3 and Crimson Skies were to suffer such an ignominious end. Sony are currently maintaining radio silence, which is a bad sign — if there were nothing to the rumors, the publishing giants would just come out and deny them.

More news when we have it.
