Sony has confirmed to IGN that Zipper Interactive will soon be shutting it’s doors for good. This is the same studio behind smash hits SOCOM, MAG, and more recently Unit 13. For those of us who remember there was a time when the only game worth playing online on a PlayStation console was SOCOM. We wish nothing but the best for the team as they move forward with their careers.
“Sony Computer Entertainment can confirm the closure of Zipper Interactive, a Seattle-based internal game development studio that has been part of the global development operation of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS). The closure is a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE WWS. Zipper has complete all work associated with its most recent project, Unit 13 for PlayStation Vita. Zipper titles MAG, SOCOM 4 and Unit 13 will continue to be supported, including the new Daily Challenges in Unit 13.” – Sony Computer Entertainment
