Update: SCEE’s just issued the following on this: “We’re not going to make any further comment over what’s been said in the statement. We believe it sums it all up.”
Sony’s announced that development of Eight Days and The Getaway has been cancelled.
“It has been agreed that production of both Eight Days and The Getaway will cease immediately due to the redistribution of resources and budget,” said the company in a statement.
“This decision was made following an internal review of all games and it was deemed that with the incredibly strong list of exclusive first party titles coming up both this year and in the near future, resource should be reallocated to enhance those projects closer to completion.
“Worldwide Studios has a reputation for innovative and entertaining games, with titles such as LittleBigPlanet, SingStar,Buzz, EyeToy and Eye of Judgement, and will continue to push the boundaries on all PlayStation platforms.”
