Sony Buys Sucker Punch Productions | PS3Blog.net

Scott Rohde, senior vice president at Sony Computer Entertainment’s Worldwide Studios America revealed in an interview for MSNBC on Monday that Sony Computer Entertainment had acquired Sucker Punch Productions.

The bottom line is, when you’ve got a group that’s been as successful as Sucker Punch, we want to ensure that we keep them in the fold. It’s that simple. It’s hard to find high quality developers like these guys.

This move ensures that all games developed by Sucker Punch will remain exclusive to Sony’s platforms going forward. Sucker Punch is well known for their work on the inFamous series as well as the Sly Cooper games. The acquisition makes Sucker Punch the 16th internally-owned studio at SCE’s Worldwide Studios.

  1. I hope that doesn’t cost them their creative freedom… like with some Hollywood studios…

    did it cost Naughty Dogs theirs?

  3. Actually this is good for Sucker Punch. Being an independent game developer means sticking to making 1 or 2 games a year due to limited resources. This will open the door for more creative ideas to be processed.

  4. Sony acquired Media Molecule in the wake of LBP’s success, as I recall. And LBP2 is still better. (Though I wonder whether it sold as well?) Anyway, I don’t doubt that Sucker Punch is celebrating now. Congrats to SP and to Sony!

  5. Makes sense since they’re a very good studio. Hope they give them enough breathing room.

    As I said, I hope it won’t. Partnership is something else entirely, but don’t mind me, I’m just extremely pessimist some times.

  9. I think as far as internally owned studios go, Sony seems to be the one that wants said studios to be able to fully express their creativity. Of course, game ideas from said studios need to be presented for Sony for approval, but, again, Sony seems pretty open to that as well.

  10. I posted it on the front page. I didn’t want to resize the image…plus it was pretty important news so I changed it from quicknews to front page.

  11. thats nice

  12. That will be a great move for them. The little engine that could out of Seattle Washington.
