Sony shuts down Zipper Interactive
Editor's Note: It always sucks to see a studio shut down. Here's hoping the members of the Zipper development team quickly land back on their feet.
Last week it was rumored that Zipper Interactive was being shutdown by Sony. Yesterday, Sony confirmed that it is indeed shutting down Zipper Interactive. The company sent the following statement regarding the closure to Game Informer:
Zipper was founded in 1995 and acquired by Sony in 2006. It's a sad day when a studio shuts down, but for some reason a lot of people saw this coming with MAG and SOCOM 4 not doing so well in sales. With that said, best of luck to all that worked at Zipper and I hope the people who work there find a new home.
So g1's, what was your favorite Zipper Interactive game. Mine would be SOCOM 2.
