Evolution and WipEout Team to merge under one roof


'Two of the best PlayStation 3 racing game developers are to eventually merge under one roof.

Developer Evolution Studios were purchased by Sony Entertainment in 2007, and have since released a successful sequel to their racing classic MotorStorm.

It's well known that the team shared not only their PlayStation 3 engine but also their knowledge with Sony Studio Liverpool in the creation of WipEout HD. The collaboration resulted in a stunning full-1080p, 60 frames-per-second futuristic racer.

When asked whether the studios would merge completely in the future, Denny replies;

"Yes, it was always the intention with them being in the same geographic location and working so closely together, it would be ideal if they could be housed at some point within the same site, but it's not happening overnight."'

Interesting news, how about now they resume the development of Eight Days and Getaway 3.

They? That's Sony London...nowhere near Liverpool or Manchester.

I expect to hear about their new off road futuristic racer maybe it will be called Wipestorm or Motorout...nah the last one doesn't sound good.

By "merge" if they think something like Activision/Blizzard than i am fine, but if "merge" means one of developers canceling their studio name and join or the other, or having all new name than i don't like that idea. Studios need to preserve their identity and brand name.

Merge under same roof - probably on different floors. They will still be very much separate studios producing different games.

"This wouldn't necessarily mean that the teams would collaborate together to create one game. The teams would remain separate, but being under one roof would allow them to more efficiently share resources."

"but being under one roof would allow them to more efficiently share resources."

Which means better games that take advantage of the PS3's hardware!

Makes perfect sense, also bount too cut costs.

I think it's a good idea for them to merge but be separate named studios. hell maybe they can help get the next motorstorm to run @ 60 fps and 1080p. BTW Deep where you been hiding? I don't see you posting much news anymore?

I have not seen you in a long time.

techie3512d ago

Would it be rude of me to say I don't remember either of you :/ Have you changed names?

geda3512d ago

wow. i never saw this coming. these dudes know racing, that's for sure.

the IP rights to Smugglers Run and have these guys work on it. Even as a DLable title, can you imagine what a team like this could do with that IP?

Oh, the online would be sweet. Kinda like a grown up more hardcore & M rated version of Calling all cars I guess.
