SCEE Stops Production of The Getaway and 8 Days

June 4, 2008 Written by Anthony Severino

In an unfortunate announcement made this morning by SCEE…

It was announced that SCEE is “stopping production” of The Getaway, and 8 Days.

Here is an excerpt form the official statement…

“It has been agreed that production of both Eight Days and The Getaway will cease immediately due to the redistribution of resources and budget.”

“This decision was made following an internal review of all games and it was deemed that with the incredibly strong list of exclusive first party titles coming up both this year and in the near future, resource should be reallocated to enhance those projects closer to completion.”

Strange as I really thought that Sony was ramping up its first party titles, and since 8 Days was so far into development it seems like this was just a waste of time and money.
