This week has been quite the disaster for some gaming companies it seems. We see that THQ laid off 118 employees from both Virgil and Relic games and now Sony has shut down Zipper Interactive. Jim Reilly reported via Twitter that Sony has confirmed that it closed down the developer. We all heard the rumors circulating but I personally never really saw this coming.
Zipper Interactive is best known for their work on games such as MAG, SOCOM and the recent Vita title Unit 13. I guess we won’t be seeing a sequel to MAG unless Sony can find a new developer that is willing to make the game. Such a shame that we must see a big name in the industry go.
