Sony has parted ways with SuperBot Entertainment according to a report from Kotaku.

This comes just days after it was revealed that the developer laid off a large number of its staff. If you are a PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale fan, future DLC releases will now be handled by Sony’s Santa Monica Studio from now on.

SuperBot’s director of operations David Yang responded:

“SuperBot Entertainment can confirm that the relationship with SCEA has ended on good terms. We are extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work on with Sony on PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale, and are extremely proud of the work we have done. SuperBot Entertainment will continue working on projects that reflect our passion for games and our commitment to creating award winning titles. We are very excited about beginning the next chapter of our future and invite all of our fans and supporters to follow our journey.”

According to Yang, he hopes SuperBot Entertainment can continue on without needing to reduce any more of its staff.

Sony did not give a reason why its dropping SuperBot Entertainment in the first place. The only possible reason could be the lack of sales that PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale earned last year…

    Man, this depresses me to no end. All-Stars is by far my game of the year for 2012, I’ve played it hundreds of hours alone and hundreds of hours with friends. It really is the ultimate PS3/Vita fighting game.

    If we don’t get sequels, I’ll be depressed ’til the end of time. I would absolutely give a kidney of mine away to see good sequels.
