Sony revises its list of European PS4 developers from 53 to 30
PS4 was revealed last week along with a huge list of supporting developers and publishers already in the frame to push out games on Sony’s hardware. However, Sony has now revised down its list of European supporters from 52 to 30. Red faces all round.
Update: Sony has just sent us the official, revised list of third-party PS4 developers and publishers across Europe. Here they are:
Last week, Sony published a list of 149 worldwide PS4 partners – 53 of which were based in Europe. The list was whittled down to just 30 names in an odd turn of events.
Joystiq reports that big names like Mojang and Criterion Games are now absent from the list as a result, begging the question, ‘Just where the hell are they?’
Mojang’s Daniel Kaplanrtold the site that it hadn’t made a decision on PS4 yet and that their inclusion on the list was an error on “Sony’s side.” A few studios have said the same.
Sumo Digital has been added to the list however. VG247′s sources have told us that the team is working on LittleBigPlanet 3 as you read this.
What do you make of the culled list?
