“It has been decided that production on a small number of projects within London Studio, Studio Liverpool, and Evolution Studios will be streamlined or closed due to a portfolio review and project prioritisation”, reads a statement given to Gamesindustry.
“This decision was made following an internal review of all games and it was deemed that with the incredibly strong list of exclusive first party titles coming up both this year and in the near future, resource should be reallocated to enhance those projects closer to completion.”
While specifics on the cancelled games were not released, the studios affected are behind franchises like WipeOut, MotorStorm, SingStar and EyePet.
