Sony have confirmed that developers Zipper Interactive have been closed down. “The closure is a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE WWS,” said a statement from Sony. ”Zipper has completed all work associated with its most recent project, Unit 13 for PlayStation Vita.”
Sony has also confirmed that previous Zipper titles, including MAG, SOCOM 4 and Unit 13 will continue to be supported, including the new Daily Challenges in Unit 13.
One final tweet from Zipper read:
After 17 years it’s time to head off into the sunset. A sincere thank you to all our fans for everything you’ve done for us. Farewell.
