Socom and MAG developer Zipper has reportedly closed their doors for good, according to parent company Sony. Apparently while the studio is closed, their games will still be supported, including the newly released Unit 13 for the Vita. Other than “executive re-alignment”, no real reason for the closure was given, and there is no word on who (if anyone) will take over the franchise going forward.
Sony issued this statement: [the closure was a] “result of a normal cycle of resource re-alignment within SCE WWS. Zipper titles MAG, SOCOM 4 and Unit 13 will continue to be supported, including the new Daily Challenges in Unit 13.”
