Sony Buys Sucker Punch Productions
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.
