The studio that brought you PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is no longer under Sony's umbrella.

Sony and Superbot Entertainment have parted ways , even though the split was amicable and the developer is looking forward to the future.

Sony has confirmed that Superbot is now independent and can go its own way:

"Sony Computer Entertainment can confirm that the working agreement with developer Superbot Entertainment has amicably ended. We have had a positive working relationship with this talented studio, and wish them the best of success in their next endeavor. PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale and the title's forthcoming DLC releases will continue to be fully supported by Santa Monica Studio."

Superbot director of operations David Yang said they won't be reducing its staff but things could change, as it's "unlikely" they'll be able to keep their current work force for a significant period of time. And here's the official statement from the PlayStation All-Stars creators:

"Superbot Entertainment can confirm that the relationship with SCEA has ended on good terms. We are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work on with Sony on Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, and are extremely proud of the work we have done. Superbot Entertainment will continue working on projects that reflect our passion for games and our commitment to creating award winning titles. We are very excited about beginning the next chapter of our future and invite all of our fans and supporters to follow our journey."

Best of luck to all the guys at Superbot!
