PlayStation London Studio has posted a farewell message to fans following Sony's decision to close the UK developer amidst 900 job layoffs at the company. Confirmed back in February, the studio was shuttered entirely while there were job losses at other first-party teams such as Naughty Dog, Insomniac Games, and Guerrilla Games.

On Twitter, PlayStation London Studio said: "For over twenty years London Studio has been home to some exceptionally talented and wonderful people in the games industry. As we close the doors, and all go forward to new adventures, we wanted to say a heartfelt thank you, to all our past and present, players and colleagues who have supported us over the years. We’ve had one wild and wonderful journey!"

Founded in 2002, PlayStation London Studio heavily supported Sony systems, starting with the PS2 and finishing off on PSVR. While it did have a live-service game in the works for PS5, this has now been cancelled. Some of its most noteworthy titles and series are EyeToy, The Getaway, SingStar, PlayStation Home, PlayStation VR Worlds, and Blood & Truth.
