Zipper Interactive on the verge of closure

Employees begin receiving redundancy notices

Reports have emerged suggesting that Sony may be in the process of shutting down the Washington-based Zipper Interactive development studio.

Zipper were the team behind MAG, the most recent SOCOM title and PS Vita shooter Unit 13.

Apparently Zipper's only remaining project, an unannounced title is rumoured to have been canned and staff at the studio are now receiving redundancy notices.

The report also suggests that, from the number of employees receiving redundancy notices the studio is preparing to close. Sony has declined to comment on the matter.

Thanks Kotaku.
