Sony has parted company with SuperBot Entertainment, the studio responsible for last year’s PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale. Sony will now continue to support the brawler in-house at Santa Monica Studios.

In a statement released by Sony, the firm confirmed that it was an amicable split and that the publisher will continue to support the game and forthcoming DLC plans from Santa Monica:

“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 then released the following:

“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.”

PlayStation All-Stars released last year to pretty mixed reviews on PS3 and Vita. It’s first DLC is due this month.
