Sony has confirmed that they have laid off a number of staff at the Washington based Sucker Punch Productions. In a statement to IGN, the company said, ”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.” So far the number of layoffs has not been revealed.
Sucker Punch, which formed in 1997, was bought by Sony in 2011 after working with the publisher for many years. The studio’s latest game was the PS4 exclusive Infamous: Second Son.
