Sucker Punch Productions Joins SCE World Wide Studios

Sucker Punch and Sony World Wide Studios

Earlier today we announced Sucker Punch Productions has officially joined Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios. We’re thrilled to share the news and welcome Sucker Punch to the PlayStation family.

Brian Fleming, managing partner of Sucker Punch Productions had this to say about becoming the sixteenth studio to join PlayStation:

“We’ve enjoyed an incredible relationship with Sony that has allowed us to combine our creative design capabilities with their guidance to make some of the best franchises to hit the PlayStation platforms. Equally important, the relationship with SCE has provided us the flexibility and trust to take creative risks and invent new properties. And best of all, we get to keep doing what we do — pushing ourselves to make more innovative games and more exciting experiences for PlayStation gamers!”

We’ve worked closely with Sucker Punch for more than 12 years, bringing fan favorites like Sly Cooper series and, of course, the inFAMOUS storyline to life on PlayStation platforms. On behalf of our executive team and Worldwide Studios, I’d like to take just a moment to welcome this immensely talented group of individuals to our team. I look forward to seeing what kind of gaming magic we can make happen in the months and years ahead!

Microsoft waste money on rubbish timed exclusive DLC while Sony spend there money wisely on new studios! :) AWESOME!:D

Is this going to change things much/at all fellas? I mean, you are already known for making Sony exclusive games.

lol that is so true hell even the DLC‘s MS gets are just timed exclusive no bigger for me i can wait a month.

we wait for 4 years for content we use to it. lol

I’d buy that for a dollar.

I loved inFAMOUS, The Sly Collection and inFAMOUS 2.

I believe SCE’s the best publisher in the world from a developer relations and content standpoint.

Good news all around, win win for all involved

Awesome

Why didn’t you guys acquire Insomniac Games? Now they’ve gone multiplat

Good bye creativity and innovation, hello mainstreaming for the sake of mainstreaming.

Was nice knowing you, Sucker Punch, but this is farewell.

So, I read that as inFamous 3 confirmed :D

I Love them! Thanks again for the great inFAMOUS series.

Make a new IP if another inFAMOUS would be forced.

Nice move Sony. What’s next? :P

yes lets hope sony dont do a london studio they cancled the getaway and that 8 days to make them make singstar crap leave them do what they do best make awsome games for just us!!!!

i worry when this happens as sony now own them and if they do a bad game or a game fails they can slice the studio up and ppl saying this wont happen well we all kow how ruthless sony can be sometimes,

id rather they spend there money in getting the timed exclusives of M$ as the call of duty deal with acti ends in 2012 and it would be awsome even if sonty put an offer in this time it would be a huge coup de gra for us and a middle finger to M$ for all those years of getting everything months after the day of release i havent bought one map pack off acti due to this and i cant see how the money they got for it could be anywhere near the money theyd get for selling on both consloes they are just greedy sods and i dont give them any of my cash i bought all the CODs secondhand so they dont get a penny

but im glad they are now part of the community of devs belonging to sony now lets drop infamous and get back to something brand new i recon a scifi scooter/rpg or a huge action adventure game using the same style as infamous that would be awsome!!!

Great news. Now if only SCEE would merge with SCEA and provide us with parity and equality and a brand we could really get behind.

22

next level 5? PLZ!! lol :P

Hope they make some new IPs aswell, dont really like infamous but Sly Cooper is a different story :D

23

Was already considered as one in the family to me :P

Fantastic news, praying for a further inFAMOUS sequel… the lightning striking the boat at the end of inFAMOUS 2 (the good finish)… that has to mean something, SURELY? :D

Amazing news for Playstation fans the world over!!!

Oh, yeah. There will be an inFamous sequel now, even though the series actually end in I2. And the title will be identical to Assassin’s Creed. Rejoice.

@AaronSOLDIER
insomniac wanted to remain independent,nothing they could do about it.Plus Sony own their noted IP’s,and I think you could find a company to create another R&C game,or Resistance.Even test out a smaller dev on a handheld version and see if they could continue the franchise.

Strange thing is,It wasn’t that long ago Sucker Punch were saying the same thing about being independent.Wonder what’s changed.

@TheDarkArk
Best not post spoilers.You don’t know who is were in a game and reading this.It’s killed my enjoyment of games before.

Congratulations! I hope this means we’ll definitely get inFamous 3 or/and a new Sly Cooper game from Sucker Punch! :D.

Excellent news, now go get insomniac back lol

Good stuff. I love inFamous and I’ve quite enjoyed Sly Cooper from what I’ve played of it (I need to buy that Collection so I can have a proper go)

Excellent News :P All we need now is a PS3 price cut for World domination(like PS1 & PS2 days) :P

Sony should make a publishing deal with Cyan Worlds (creators of Myst series).

This rocks! Congrats to Sucker Punch and SCE!

35

Congrats Sucker Punch. can’t wait to see what you guys have planned going forward with SCE world wide studios

36

Well this is brilliant news.

I think a celebratory DLC for infamous 2 is in order then :P hint hint :P

Smartest move from Sony in a WHILE.

38

Good buy, Sony. Now, next up: Insomniac. Keep those developers on side!

39

That’s good news, and I hope this translates into even better games! (As if they weren’t good enough now lol)

Excellent news. One of the best studios around right now.

49

Good move Sony. Sucker Punch are one of my Fav devs. Loved Infamous 1+2 and Would love to see a third but would be equally happy with a new IP from such a talented group.
