Sucker Punch Productions Joins SCE World Wide Studios

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!

I loved inFAMOUS, The Sly Collection and inFAMOUS 2.

I believe SCE’s the best publisher in the world from a developer relations and content standpoint.

InFamous 1 & 2 are the games to get for the system. Good to hear Sucker Punch will get to continue making great PS3 games like these for the long haul.

Congrats! Sony treats its World Wide Studios well. Just look at Naughty Dog :)

They (and everyone else in the industry) needs to start making apps and mobile games or else everyone is going to fail. Big budget games are going to become a gamble here pretty soon (especially exclusives) so hopefully they chose the right path. Still a good move on their part.

Congrats. Sucker Punch is one of my favorite developers because they brought two great franchises to me, Sly Cooper and Infamous. Can’t wait to see what else they have up their sleeve.

TeflonGreen said:

August 2nd, 8:06 am

i wanna see infamous on playstation vita, but if your doing a vita title, honestly a sly cooper or a new family friendly ip would be smarter seeing u guys wawnt more then just the hardcore audience to play, and there are good ones like little big planet and modnation aswell little deviant but after that i only know about rayman origins as a famil friendly game coming and thats whats goina bring vita down if anything, we need some jak and daxter, ratchet and clank, sly cooper, and if possible to get crash bandicoot they need to make him sony owned cuz activision is doin nothin with him, and honestly sony needs to have a sit down with them and talk over the possiblity even if they gotta buy him for alot of money. but back to the point sucker punch is awesome, guess its time to suckerpunch the industry lol
