Sony will close its PlayStation VR game production company in Manchester, UK. This studio isEstablished in 2015Since then, I've been working on an unreleased VR project, but never released a work. According to game industry information site Gameindustry.biz, the fourth-generation PlayStation will close Sony's third UK studio after Evolution Studios in 2016 and Guerrilla Cambridge in 2017. Still, Sony still has two studios in the UK.
There is no information as to whether the unreleased VR project will be taken over by another studio due to this closure, and it is not clear. However, since Sony announced that it would launch a next-generation console in 2020, the latest quarterly report reports that PlayStation 4-related sales, including game software, have slowed significantly.
Of course, slowing down does not mean that the management of Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) is leaning. Nevertheless, it is possible that this achievement was related to the closure of the UK studio. In any case, if the current organization is streamlined for the start dash of the next generation machine and the long-term plan afterwards, and it will send out more excellent works one after another, it is a good story for users.
