Probably likely that it'll be more Wipeout made by someone else instead. Although I'm not sure how much of a golden goose Wipeout is for Sony these days.

Huh, well bloody hell. I can only hope the visionaries behind Wipeout, Destruction Derby etc are being re-appropriated elsewhere in the group. Presumably, XDev (LBP, Motorstorm, Buzz!) are also affected?

Ugh, probably just as bad. Wipeout has been doing well on the PS3/Vita with 2048 and HD/Fury, and I was hoping for the next game on the PlayStation 4.

Well that brings back memories of Colony Wars and G-Police. I still have them too, nobody else made space combat quite like that.
Oh well, sell out to the big boys, suffer the consequences eventually.

I hadn't heard of Psygnosis for ages, mainly because Wipeout has only been for Sony things recently.

Thanks for the lemmings though, im sure the quantity of time I spent playing Lemmings as a child has been instrumental in the development of my problem solving skills.

"It has been decided that production on a number of projects within Studio Liverpool will cease immediately due to project prioritisation. Our North West Studio Group has been and will continue to be a vital cog in the WWS family, with a history of producing genre defining games such as MotorStorm, WipEout, Formula 1 and WRC and this decision will have no impact of the role that the North West Studio Group will play in the future of all PlayStation platforms."
Think they`ve been living on borrowed time since jan 2010 tbh

As do I - which is sort of why I included that self-same press statement right in the middle of the article.

I loved Gpolice and Wipeout. Its sad to see the studio go but i would love to see revamped versions on pc taking advantage of the lastest hardware's abilities.

G-Police was one of those defining games on the PSX for me, it's just as important in my gaming history as Crash 3 or MGS. Happy times.

Farewell Psygnosis - You made some of the best games on the Amiga (Hired Guns, Shadow of the Beast, Lemmings, Agony) with some of the best intros at the time.
