Sony is shutting down Evolution Studios, the team behind PlayStation exclusives Driveclub and MotorStorm. As of today, the studio will be no more, as confirmed by Jamie Bradshaw, the Sr. Community Manager at the company on twitter.

Driveclub wasn’t exactly a smashing success, but it was a decent game and an interesting idea. It’s unfortunate to see Sony closing down shop for the studio behind the game, but it’s another in a long line of closures in the industry. We’re wishing the best to all of the people at Evolution Studios, and we hope they land new work soon.
Meanwhile, the move has left everyone wondering whether or not Driveclub VR will see a release. It would be interesting if not, as the game was just shown off at GDC last week.
