SCE Studio Liverpool
SCE Studio Liverpool was a development studio of Sony Computer Entertainment
located in Liverpool, United Kingdom and part of the SCE Worldwide Studios
group. It was formed when Psygnosis
became a Sony brand. Psygnosis was acquired by Sony in 1993 to work on the new PlayStation machine, and in 1999 eventually lost the Psygnosis branding to become known as Sony Studio Liverpool. Some of the original developers from late '80s and early '90s were still employed there.
The studio was known for two major franchises: the Psygnosis/Sony Formula One series
and the WipEout series
. At the end of August 2012 Sony confirmed to close the studio. Its last title was WipEout 2048
. Sony said to transfer as many staff as possible between the other studios and the Liverpool facility continued to operate, housing a number of other WWS!E and SCE departments.
In January 2013 four developers formerly with the company launched their development studio Sawfly Studios Ltd.
