Sony’s president of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, has told the US Official PlayStation Magazine hasn’t cancelled the SOCOM franchise. “It’s not done. We never retire any franchise,” he said before using Sly Cooper as an example of a franchise rebirth. Yoshida added “it’s sometimes good to have a fresh look at the franchises we have,” and to “never say never” when it comes to a Sony property. The firm shut down SOCOM developer Zipper Interactive back in April, a move Yoshida said was “a very difficult decision and thing to deal with”. Thanks, OPM UK.
