PlayStation London Studio has officially closed as part of Sony Interactive Entertainment's restructuring after 22 years in operation.

The details:

  • The studio was founded in 2002 and best known for its work on SingStar, the EyeToy series, PlayStation VR Worlds, and The Getaway. SIE announced in February 2024 that it would close the developer as it laid off 8% of its global workforce, which also brought the development of its fantasy co-op game to an end.

  • London Studio bid farewell to players and colleagues in a post on X, thanking them for their support over the last two decades. “For over twenty years London Studio has been home to some exceptionally talented and wonderful people in the games industry,” the developer wrote. “As we close the doors, and all go forward to new adventures, we wanted to say a heartfelt thank you, to all our past and present, players and colleagues who have supported us over the years. We’ve had one wild and wonderful journey!”

  • PlayStation's restructuring has resulted in approximately 900 job losses across first-party studios including Naughty Dog, Insomniac Games, Firesprite, and Guerrilla, as well as its US-based technology, creative, and support teams. A number of projects were also canceled across the company.
