SuperBot Entertainment hit with layoffs, report says around 20 people lost jobs A Sony spokesperson confirmed with IGN that SuperBot Entertainment has been hit by a round of layoffs and made a reduction in their workforce today.

News first broke by Insomniac game designer, Mike Birkhead on Twitter, and Sony has since confirmed.

SCEA can confirm that SuperBot Entertainment did make a reduction in their workforce today. The studio and SCEA remain committed to supporting PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale post launch, including developing the title’s forthcoming DLC releases in the coming months. The first character pack (including Kat from Gravity Rush and Emmett Graves from Starhawk) will be available for download on February 12 and will be free for the first two weeks. We’ll be sharing news of additional upcoming content soon.”

While the exact numbers aren't known, Mike noted in a response that it was around 20 people in total.

Keep in mind, SuperBot posted a few new jobs back in mid-December, which hint towards a sequel to PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

It's also worth noting that both the PS3 and PS Vita version of the game were in the top 10 sales for the month of December.
