Rumor – Zipper Interactive was working on a PS4 game before being shuttered

Wednesday, 27th June 2012 18:34 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Internet sleuth Superannuation has found the resumes of former Zipper Interactive employees which state the firm was developing a game for the next Sony console before the studio was shuttered.

According to what Super dug up, the studio was working on “two unannounced projects.” One for PS3 and the other for a platform which was “TBD”. The resumes of two designers suggest the titles were multiplayer-based, and another resume belonging to a former Zipper senior designer lists two unannounced projects for an “unannounced system.”

Super notes the description for this unannounced system could go either way: it’s either the PS4 which is rumored to be condenamed Orbis, or it’s “a standard vague descriptor.”

He also notes the that concept art featured here and here could have something to do with the projects, but are “more than likely irrelevant.”

Sony closed up SOCOM developer Zipper Interactive in April after rumors of lay-offs surfaced back in late March.

    Most of the recently closed studios were involved ins some form of Gen-8 planning or development. As the investment dries up, AAA Gen-8 games look vulnerable and uneconomic.

    It may also be the start of a move towards a limited studio star system – and that as publishers are forced off the retail model to DLC, they will have to consolidate resources to stay viable.

He was wearing an embroidered court uniform, stockings burberry accessories and slippers, and had stars on his breast, and a bright smile on his flat face. He spoke in that elaborately choice French, in which our forefathers not only spoke but thought, and with those slow, patronising burberry bags intonations peculiar to a man of importance who has grown old in court society. He went up to Anna Pavlovna, kissed her hand, presenting her with a view of his perfumed, shining bald head, and burberry outlet online sale complacently settled himself on the sofa.CF
