Sony’s Studio Liverpool Appear To Be Back On wipEout

When we last covered Sony-owned wipEout developer, Studio Liverpool, the subject of the report was a mysteriously-canceled wipEout game that was in development for unnamed hardware. The news came via the resumé of Martin Linklater, former Technical Director at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.


Earlier in the year, Studio Liverpool underwent a restructuring alongside other Sony game development studios, which, unfortunately, involved lay-offs and cancellation of several projects. A recently-posted job listing, however, suggests that Studio Liverpool are not only actively developing games again, but are also prepping for what seems to be the next wipEout game.



The listing is for the post of a Senior Designer, to work on a “high-profile, futuristic racing franchise.” The only such franchise Sony own is wipEout.


What system this game is for isn’t mentioned either. It could be for the PlayStation 3 or even for the inevitable PSP2. Only time will tell.

    Cool but I want Studio Liverpool to do another Colony Wars :(

  • Launch title for PSP2.

  • DarkWaterClone

    Well this is nice. I hope if this is a new Wipeout then after that Colony Wars will be next. I think a new Colony Wars game would be great. Because space sim shooter games are nice & they don’t come out as much as they did in thr past.

    I also wonder if it could be Rollcage. Psygnosis made so many great games & I would like to see Sony bring them back to life. I would like to see a new Drakan, Novastorm, G-Police & Shadow of the Beast.

    I can’t wait to find out what game this is & if it is for the PS3 or PSP2.
