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 the 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 the closure of 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 2012 Firesprite Ltd. was established with a large amount of people previously with SCE Studio Liverpool. In January 2013 four developers formerly with the company launched their development studio Sawfly Studios Ltd.
