Sucker Punch Productions Joins SCE World Wide Studios

Scott Rohde's Avatar Posted by SVP of Product Development, Worldwide Studios America, SCEA

Sucker Punch and Sony World Wide Studios

Earlier today we announced Sucker Punch Productions has officially joined Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios. We’re thrilled to share the news and welcome Sucker Punch to the PlayStation family.

Brian Fleming, managing partner of Sucker Punch Productions had this to say about becoming the sixteenth studio to join PlayStation:

“We’ve enjoyed an incredible relationship with Sony that has allowed us to combine our creative design capabilities with their guidance to make some of the best franchises to hit the PlayStation platforms. Equally important, the relationship with SCE has provided us the flexibility and trust to take creative risks and invent new properties. And best of all, we get to keep doing what we do — pushing ourselves to make more innovative games and more exciting experiences for PlayStation gamers!”

We’ve worked closely with Sucker Punch for more than 12 years, bringing fan favorites like Sly Cooper series and, of course, the inFAMOUS storyline to life on PlayStation platforms. On behalf of our executive team and Worldwide Studios, I’d like to take just a moment to welcome this immensely talented group of individuals to our team. I look forward to seeing what kind of gaming magic we can make happen in the months and years ahead!

Wow that’s awesome. Sony is really pushing forward to have more than it’s competitors which is great to see. I’m glad that whole “making a game exlusive is to expensive so all the systems have the same stuff” crap is over.

Awesome! Sucker Punch are one of my favorite developers! I’m excited to see what they come up with next! Another inFamous (new character of course) or yet another awesome new IP. I just hope we won’t have to wait four years for said IP this time though!
