In Sony News This Week...

Following Microsoft news from Monday and Tuesday, Sony Entertainment has revealed a series of layoffs at one of their flagship studios Sony Santa Monica. In it's history, the studio has released 5 games, most notably the God of War series. It's also where Thatgamecompany, Flower and Journey, and Fun Bits, Fat Princess, had their origins before moving on to bigger and better things. So there's a lot of history revolving around the studio.

In the process, a game has been cancelled as well from the studio as the team retools and refocuses on other projects and more DLC content for other Sony Entertainment titles. What was cancelled? We don't know. Assumption is that it is another God of War game, after Ascension underperformed in its 2013 release. The team will still work on other projects, but a studio with one meh release was enough to boot a few of the staff. Sadly, this is the world we live in.
