Sony has today announced that they have purchased the ‘Infamous’ developer Sucker Punch. From here on all games made by the studio will be officially Playstation exclusives. It’s surprising that this wasn’t done sooner, as I’m sure Sucker Punch considered themselves loyal to Sony anyway. Sony Computer Entertainment WorldWide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida had this to say about the acquisition.
“Sucker Punch Productions is one of the most highly acclaimed development studios in the industry and we have enjoyed a wonderful relationship with the company for over 12 years. We are delighted to officially welcome them to the SCE family,”
“The addition of Sucker Punch to SCE WWS reiterates our dedication to developing world class gaming experiences that can only be found on the PlayStation platform. With one of the strongest exclusive software lineups in the PS3′s history, combined with the diverse, innovate content in the works for PlayStation Vita, consumers have a lot to be excited about this year.”
Sony World Wide Studios US head Scott Rohde also mentioned that there may have been some other potential buyers.
“I’d be lying if I said other groups weren’t interested in a group like Sucker Punch,”
I wonder who else could have been interested? Let us know your thoughts.
