Infamous Developer Sucker Punch Experiencing Layoffs

On Tuesday, Sony confirmed that the developer behind their beloved Infamous franchise, Sucker Punch, is having a "reduction in workforce" effective immediately.

Sony broke the news in a global statement:

SCEA can confirm a reduction in workforce has taken place at Sucker Punch Productions. Sucker Punch is appreciative of the tremendous work team members contributed to the inFAMOUS and Sly Cooper series, and wishes them the best in their next endeavors.

A couple days into the layoffs, it is still silent as to how many were laid off, although it is quite common for layoffs to occur after a game has completed. With Infamous: Second Son receiving its DLC next week entitled First Light, it would seem that all work on their current projects has completed.

We loved Infamous: Second Son and were the authority on the Paper Trail AR missions. You can read those here.
