"Our goal was to create a game that you could play from beginning to end and you would, literally, never hear the same piece of music played twice."

Following Sega’s proposed layoffs and cancellations, another game studio has had to close its doors.

Sony today confirmed the closure of their Seattle-based Zipper Interactive, the game studio that brought to us the SOCOM series.

A Sony representative told Game Informer that the closure was “a result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE WWS.” SOCOM fans should be rest assured as its most recent project, Unit 13 for PlayStation Vita has been completed, and current titles MAG, SOCOM 4 and Unit 13 (including its DAily Challenges) will continue to be supported.
