Sony has announced they are closing down Zipper Interactive, the developer behind the well regarded SOCOM Navy SEALs series. The developer recently released Unit 13 for the Vita.
Sony explained the reason for the decision in an official statement
In an official statement Sony explained that the decision was made “a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment” and went on to say that “Zipper has completed all work associated with its most recent project, Unit 13 for PlayStation Vita. Zipper titles MAG, SOCOM 4 and Unit 13 will continue to be supported, including the new Daily Challenges in Unit 13.”
We would like to wish the 80 employees all the best in finding new employment in what is becoming an ever more turbulent industry.
