iwanrj.com – Jakarta – Sony plans to close in-house studio developer within PlayStation Studio, namely PixelOpus in June.
According to information from Engadget, Sony PlayStation representatives have confirmed that the company will be closing its PixelOpus game studio next month for a recent review process.
“PlayStation Studio regularly evaluates the company’s portfolio and the status of the studio’s projects to ensure it continues to meet its planned short-term and long-term strategic goals,” said a PlayStation representative.
“As part of our recent review process, we have decided that the in-house game studio PixelOpus will close in June 2023,” added a PlayStation representative.
On the other hand, PixelOpus studio has also revealed that its adventure has ended through its official Twitter account. For those who don’t know, PixelOpus is the studio behind Concrete Genie and Entwined games.
Even though, the studio will be closing next month, PixelOpus is reportedly working on a new PS5 game along with Sony Pictures Animation.
Studio PixelOpus is located in Santa Mateo and has been established since 2014 under the auspices of Sony Interactive Entertainment in response to the surprising success of the indie studio developing games on PS3.
The two games by PixelOpus try to keep the same kind of original ideas, much like Entwined is a game dual-stick rhythm with a different art style about blue birds and orange fish flying across the cosmos.
Meanwhile, Conrete Genie is an adventure game that uses street art to survive various intimidations.
The closure of this studio is very unfortunate, because often studios are experimental with ideas out of the box to make games of the highest quality, when large companies seek to cut game development costs.
Even though PixelOpus will be closing soon, its Concrete Genie game will still be available on the PlayStation Store and will be sold at IDR 429,000. [FY/HBS]
